This effect displays flower like shapes at the coordinates contained in the input array. The shapes can be set to pulse outwards, as seen in the example below.


Array properties

Any properties in the input array that matches the name of these properties will be used and displayed accordingly.
These properties can also be shown as inputs on the node by toggling the icon.
In the dropdown menu you can choose how values from the array interact with values from the Editor panel or the input between : Replace, Add or Multiply.
More information can be found on the GPU Multi category page.

  • X : Sets the X value for the coordinates of the effect.
    Default : WIDTH ÷ 2
  • Y : Sets the Y value for the coordinates of the effect.
    Default : HEIGHT ÷ 2
  • Lifetime : Manually set the time in ms since the input item was created. If there is a Lifetime property in your input array, the effect will be animated using the data it contains.
    More information can be found on the GPU Multi category page.
    Default : 0.0
  • Radius : Sets the radius of the flowers
    Default : WIDTH ÷ 10
  • Soft Edge : Applies a softness to the edges of the shapes. A value of 0 means no softness, and the edges are drawn sharp. A value of 1 means a lot of softness. Values can go over 1 but will quickly make the shapes disappear.
    Default : 0.0
  • Petals : The number of brands to draw on the flowers. Note that 0 is accepted and that negative values will have similar results to their opposite positive values.
    Default : 5
  • Intensity : Sets the strength of the stroke. Higher values (>4) give thicker strokes while lower values (<2) give thinner strokes.
    Default : 2.0
  • RGB Splitting : Sets an offset between the Red, Green and Blue color channels. The strokes split into three strokes, one for each channel.
    Default : 0.0
  • Pulse Speed : Sets the speed (and frequency) of the pulses. A value of 0 on this property removes the animation (pulses).
    Default : 0.0
  • Pulse Offset : Offsets the pulses in time (not in space). The offset operates between 0 and 1. Every round multiple of 1 will re-sync the pulses with an equivalent value of 0.
    Default : 0.0

Global properties

This node does not have any global properties.


This lists only the inputs present by default at the creation of the node. The inputs that appear can be tuned by toggling the button in the Editor panel.
