Description: This applet can generate and animate a realtime "plasma" effect, well known in contest scenes. About the plasma generators: (gen1,gen2,gen3)- I can say that gen1 is a rather smooth value: the min is 8 (very smooth, like fog), and the max is 2000, where all is psychedelic (too much, I think). Gen2 and Gen3 are x and y stretchers... they can go from 3 (many small curves) to 256 (one great curve). About the palette: there are 3 parameters for each Red Green Blue (RGB) component. This is more complex, but can give you much flexibility (and also the power to do many bugged palettes). The red1,green1,blue1 values (0-255) are the multipliers of totality. The red2,green2,blue2 values (0-255) are fixed added values of totality. The red3,green3,blue3 values (1-8) are "smoothing" values of totality. This means that if red1=0, then the green3 value is totally disabled and all the 256 colors will have the "red2" red component. The speed from 1 to 8 is useful, only when you make really large plasmas. In this case you can increase this value a bit, but the plasma will not really be faster: it will simply skip some frames. View plasma3.txt for description of parameters.
