This Kaleider screen image shows a Cone Funnel that has been
positioned within a photo. A single Base Cone is used to define the characteristics
of this variety of Funnel. The area between the orange and yellow lines
at the end of the Cone is the portion of the image that will be mirrored recursively
inward. The orange box can be moved to adjust the amount and direction of
curvature from outward, to flat, to inward. The yellow box within the Cone can
be adjusted to set the size of the mirrored area. Red boxes are available
to control the width of the Base Cone, which also determines how many total Cones
will fit around the center (12 in this example). The green box that extends from
the Cone point can be rotated to any direction, and there is also a group of green
boxes that will quickly orient the Cone to the most symmetrical alignments.
As usual, the effect can be repositioned by clicking and dragging within the yellow
effect outline, and the yellow boxes at the outline corners can be clicked and dragged
to resize the effect. If the Replicate Base Cone option is set, the Base
Cone will be mirrored radially around the center to create the other Cones.
Otherwise, each Cone will be produced from its own portion of the source image (which
looks quite different). Just press Render (or the Space bar) to render
the Funnel. The Shifting Effects feature can then be used to
reposition the result as desired with the mouse, essentially re-rendering the same
effect based upon different relative positions within the source image.
