Controls
Presets
To select a preset, pick one from the Presets window.
Tile Frequency
The frequency of the tile pattern. Increase for more smaller tiles.
Tile Rel Height
The relative height of the tile shapes. Increase for taller tiles.
Tile Shift X & Y
Translates the tile pattern.
Inside Zdist
Determines the zoom factor of the image inside each tile. Values greater than 1 zoom out, values less than 1 zoom in. If this is 1, Inside Rotate is 0, and Overall Zdist is 1, the result should be the same as the original image.
Inside Rotate
The rotation angle of the image inside each tile, in degrees.
Overall Zdist
Creates an overall zooming effect by making each tile look toward or away from the image center. Decrease to zoom in or increase to zoom out. When 0, all tiles should contain identical images.
Wrap
Determines the method for accessing outside the borders of the source image.
No
Gives black beyond the borders.
Tile
Repeats a copy of the image.
Reflect
Repeats a mirrored copy. Edges are often less visible with this method.
Filter
If enabled, the Source image is resampled using pixel averaging. This removes aliasing and gives a higher quality result especially when Inside Zdist is large. It may not be necessary if your original image is smooth or Inside Zdist is small.
Crop Input
These 4 parameters, Crop Top, Crop Bottom, Crop Left, and Crop Right, allow selecting a rectangular subsection of the image to be processed. If the Wrap parameters are set to "No", the exposed borders will be transparent. If the Wrap is "Tile" or "Reflect", the source image is wrapped on the new cropped borders to fill the frame. This can make it easier to avoid artifacts due to distorting an image with bad edges.
Show Tile Freq
Enables/disables the on-screen control for adjusting the Tile Frequency parameter.
Show Tile Shift
Enables/disables the on-screen control for adjusting the Tile Shift parameter.
