Using the Kaleidoscope transformation

Before we add another layer, let's rename this layer in the Layers tab of the Fractal Properties tool window.

  • Rename the current layer Lake.
  • Add another layer and rename it Sky.

Go ahead and leave the Normal merge mode and 100% opacity settings as they are. This means we will not be seeing the bottom layer for a bit.


On the Mapping tab of the Layer Properties tool window, delete the Lake transform by clicking the Delete button.

The layer again looks like our Newton 1 image from the Quick Start tutorial.

  • Add a new transformation the Kaleidoscope transformation in Standard.uxf.

We are going to keep the default settings for this layer, but this transformation has a lot of interesting effects you may want to pursue at a later time.
