This effect displays a rosette drawing at the input coordinates.


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 : Sets the time in ms since the input item was created. The Lifetime property will animate the rotation speed of the rosae. More information can be found on the GPU Multi category page.
    Default : inactive property)
  • Radius : Set the radius for a rosae.
    Default : Width / 10
  • SoftEdge : Applies a blur to soften the edge around the rosae. Values too high ( >1) may hide the rosae.
    Default : 0.1
  • Fractal Parameter : The amount of rosae to draw. The higher the value, the more rosette will be drawn.
    Default : 1.0
  • Petals : The number of branches (or petals) to draw the rosae with. Values too low (<4) will not produce a rosae, but the effects can be visually interesting nevertheless.
    Default : 5.0
  • Width : The width of the stroke for the drawing. Higher values will give bulkier strokes.
    Default : 5.0
  • RGB Splitting : The amount of split to apply to the RGB channels. A value of 0 will give no split and a pure white stroke. Depending on your other parameters, higher values will split the channels and give various colouring to the stroke.
    Default : 0.0
  • Rot Speed : If the Lifetime property is animated (e.g. present in the input array and incrementing over time), this property will set the speed of rotation of the rosae. If no Lifetime is present this property will have no effect.
    Default : 0.0
  • Angle Offset : Offsets the angle to display the rosae. Full rotation occurs between 0 and 1800 but this should be fixed shortly.
    Default : 0.0

Global properties

This node does not have any global properties.
