A Pattern can optionally be confined to a specified portion of the window
display so that any rendered effects will appear only within that area. (The
full window is still used to display source images.) For example, the current
Pattern Area might be set to a square, framed by black (or some other
color). Options are available to Save and Copy only the
current Pattern Area (rather than the full window). The Pattern
Area screen provides options for defining the dimensions, position and
functionality of the current Pattern Area. 3D Rooms and
Masks can be scaled to fit within the Pattern Area. The
Frame portions of the window outside of the Pattern Area will be
filled according to the Pattern Framing Option: Use Black,
Use Background Color, Use Mask Color or Use Source Image.
New Patterns are initially created with the Default Pattern Area, (including
the Pattern that is automatically created when Kaleider is run).
The Default Pattern Area can easily be changed by checking the Set this
Pattern Area as the Default box before pressing the Save button.
Essentially the same screen, with slight differences, can be used to define an Area
to contain a Pattern Combo.
