+100 new integrated effects

 

Outline Category

The first category of effect is now called “Outline”, which is composed of the effects “Border”, “Line” and “Repeat”.

 

 

Border Effect

Modes to sublimate your shapes

The “Border” effect evolves and now includes 3 new modes: Blink, Half and Quarter. These modes change the appearance of your borders and set them automatically in motion.

border category

 

Blink: Alternate between turning on/off the borders of your shapes, giving the impression of a blinking.

Blink effect

Blink effect with modification of the speed

 

Half: Only shows the half of the edges of each of your shapes at the same time. Alternates between all the edges.

Helf effect

“Half” effect with “tempo” seeting on the thinkness and modification of the speed

 

Quarter: Only shows 1/4 of the edges of each of your shapes at the same time. Alternates between all the edges, clockwise.

Line Effect

« Boomerang » and « Yoyo », your 2 new friends !

These two modes are really good alternatives to the Line “Classic” effect.

Line category

 

Boomerang: Displays an animated line on each edge of your shapes. Each line moves back and forth between the ends of the edge it’s on in a sort of bouncy motion.

Bommerang effect

“Boomerang” effect with modification of the lenght of the border

 

Yoyo: Displays an animated line on each edge of your shapes. Each line is tied to one end of the edge it’s on and extends until it reaches the other end, then retracts completely and so on. Kind of like a yoyo that goes down till the end of the thread, then comes back up.

Yoyo effect

“Yoyo” effect with modification of the “Offset” setting

 

 

Combinations of “Line” + “Repeat” effects

Towards infinite possibilities

It becomes very interesting to combine the new “Line” effect with the “Repeat” effect. The “Phase offset” setting of the “Line” effects becomes very important to access to the new effects.

Filling category

 

 

Color Effect

“Gradient” moves for you!

It is now possible to set the “Gradient” effect in motion! The settings “Swing”, “Rotate” and “Blink” bring dynamism to the gradient and reveal a huge range of possibilities for your creations.

Special Effect

Width on demand!

In this latest version, you can now adjust the stripe width of the “Stripe” effect.

 

Stripe

Increase/reduction of the width of the stripes

 

Transformation category

 

Structure Effect

Instances for more fun!

The “Instance” setting gives a serious blow to this effect. By increasing the “number” and shifting the “inner offset” you will get original animations. By playing on the “Offset phase” at the same time, the assemblies become almost infinite!

Elastic

Increase of the number of instances of the “Elastic position”, “Elastic rotation” and “Elastic scale” effects.

 

Radial Glow

“Radial Glow” effect with the increase of “Phase offset” setting

 

3D transition

 

The new “Blinds” and “Falls” transitions create a real depth effect that will surprise your audience!

 

3D Transitions

The 2 new 3D transitions “Falls” and “Blinds”.

 

The Clip mode

 

Introduced in HeavyM 1.7, the clip mode, as its name suggests, clips the visual effects that overflow out of your faces (it doesn’t apply to players, post shaders and transition effects). Obviously, the effects are always displayed within your shapes, but there can be an overflow due to the motion of some effects. For example, this can happen if you are using a custom center that is outside of your shapes, or with the rotation effect.

More controls with Midi/OSC

 

It’s now possible to control the play/pause/stop of your video with a MIDI controler or with OSC protocol. You can also change the value of the TAP tempo to change on the flow the global speed your animations

 High/Normal performance Mode

 

In HeavyM 1.7, we have introduced a new performance mode selection. It is intended to help you get the best out of HeavyM in terms of memory management, depending on the type of project you’re creating and the capacity of your graphics hardware.
