How do I create my effects using the FX Wizard patterns?

Features and use of the FX Wizard editor

Applies to all Gen I and Gen II devices, Twinkly PRO and Twinkly Plus.
Not  available for RBW LED profiles.

 

The initial screen offers a choice among FX Wizard pattern selection, and the option of drawing directly with your finger...so first, choose your Pattern!

 

Remember that one of the exclusive functions of the wizard is the possibility of overlaying multiple patterns (Click on the + inside the sidebar)

 

All of the Patterns available, when selected, will enable you to use a range of tools to create your effect in the most customized way possible.

Each Pattern will have a suite of features that may vary slightly depending on the characteristics of the selected one.

You can choose from over 16 million colors, opening our famous super palette, adjust brightness, speed, shift, angle, and zoom, with some slight variation from pattern to pattern.

Before we look at each pattern one by one, we are very excited to announce another great new feature that will help make the effects creation experience, really magical: you can overlay patterns to add further options to the final effect (you will see some examples below, but just click on the + icon on the right side of the screen)

In addition, you can apply the text to a personal pattern:

  • Create your pattern with the setup you prefer
  • Click the + icon in the toolbar to the right of the screen
  • Click on the TEXT command
  • open the menu and choose your text and all the options you prefer.

In general, the New layer tool you find  with a + icon, allows you to add new levels, or layers, to the first one you created, mixing the patterns, to obtain even more complex and animated effects.


Important notes:

  • It's important to keep in mind that the definition of the text will be related to the density of the LEDs, the higher the number of LEDs and the smaller the space between them, the higher the definition of your text.
  • The best performance can be reached by using a very high number of LEDs (this feature is especially dedicated to those who create large installations with Twinkly PRO).
