Kaleider 5.6 introduces a new Equilateral Triangle Mirror variety, along with a large selection of pre-defined Mirror Patterns. Also, It's now possible to precisely adjust the positioning of rendered effects. And many more miscellaneous improvements. Further details follow: (Also see Kaleider 5.6.1)
As with Rectangle, Diamond and Right Triangle Mirrors, it's possible to create custom designed Equilateral Triangle Mirrors (click the button at the bottom-left of the Mirrors panel to begin the process). And of course there is also a large collection of pre-defined Equilateral Triangle Mirror Patterns (click the bottom-right button of the Mirrors panel for a menu). Mirror Transforms can be specified to alter the reflection properties of Mirrors in various ways, sometimes producing unusual, often unexpected effect variations.
NOTE: If you are using your own saved Configuration Files, you might
want to update them to include the new Equilateral Triangle Mirror Patterns,
(under the Mirrors tab of the
Kaleider Configuration screen), so that those effects might be
selected with Random Effects and Automatic Effects.
The current position of a rendered effect Tile and any Image Shifts
are shown, along with the resulting net Tile Position. The Tile
X/Y and the Image Shift X/Y values can be altered to precisely specify
the relative position of the effect Tile within the source image and the
display window. Click Update to apply any changes. Click
Reset to set the net Tile Pos X/Y values as the Tile X/Y
position and set the Image Shift X/Y values to zero.
The Shift Mode drop-down box on Edit Tools can be used to specify
how mouse movements can alter the relative positioning of the effect Tile
and the source image. The possible Shift Modes are: Tile
to move the Tile, Image to 'virtually' shift the source image (while
keeping the Tile stationary), or Pattern which moves both the
Tile and the source image in tandem. The Outline option can
be helpful with understanding how these Shift Modes operate.
Kaleider 5.6.1 includes a new Spout library which provides alternate methods for continuously sending Kaleider images to other Spout enabled applications (primarily used by VJ artists). A few other minor updates.
