The Galaxy effect creates a spiral like effect that expands around the model either clockwise or counterclockwise. Used most effectively on models such as a mega tree or a matrix. One or multiple colors can be used for the effect. If multiple colors are selected, than the spiral will be made up of the selected colors.

Description

Start: Center X,Y

Defines the x and y coordinates of the center (i.e. focus) point of the galaxy effect.

Start: Radius

Defines the lower radius of the galaxy.

Start: Width

Controls the width of the lower end of the spirals.

Start: Angle

Controls the angle of the spirals.

End: Radius

Defines the upper radius of the galaxy.

End: Width

Controls the upper width of the spirals.

End: Rev’s

Determines the number of full revolutions each arm makes in the given timeframe.

Options: Head Duration

Controls the swell i.e. the amount of time that the head of the spiral uses.

Options: Acceleration

Sets the speed of a non-linear movement for the head color and body.

Options: Reverse

Reverses the direction of the rotation of the galaxy effect.

Options: Blend Edges

Each edge blends to black. Turning it off converts the galaxy effect to a full circle at the end of the rotation.

Options: Inward

If the spirals overlap, it determines if the spirals will appear to be moving inward or outward. If there is no overlap, this setting will have no effect.
