It was built with a simple replicator, the hardest thing was to make it a useful FCPX generator. Now its development is in a satisfactory level, and I think it is time to make it available. The published parameters allow us to obtain numerous variants of form and color. After the usual adjustments, we find:
Themes: A choice of four materials: Amber - Bubble - Sardinia - Rainbow
Inner light: Two level, for Adding the brightness if necessary
Variations: Change the position of the “Anchor Point”
X.Shear: Produce a strain of the character shape
Radius: Change the radius of the replicator
Units: The number of elements in the replicator
Text: The kaleidoscope can be constituted either by a character or words. The choice will affect the shape
Viewpoint: This Kaleidoscope is 3D object and the variation of the observation point causes a change of the shape
or the vision of the characters that compose it. In Char front or Back you can use it as a title generator.
Deep: Is the amount of extrusion of the character.
This list is a compromise to keep the Kaleidoscope quite simple. But those who want to be more daring, I suggest to change the setting of materials applied to the “Unit” from single to multiple , or enter the rotation of Y axis for the Kaleidoscope Group. I used these variations in the demo movie.
Unzip the attachment and put the “Kaleidoscope” folder in User / Your name / Movies / Motion Templates/ Generators / Pielle.
Remember : Test with characters and symbols shape
Thanks Pielle, this is INCREDIBLY impressive! As I sit here and try and take it apart to figure out how you did this...all I can say is...well...someday, when I grow up, I hope to be able to do exactly what you are able to do.
