This animation is a gift to Fleur555 ([link]
). She loves kaleidoscopes and does a wonderful job creating them. Make sure you visit her site and view her great artwork.
The animation was born out of a suggestion that I make my first ascii animation ([link]
) have a matrix-style look. After a couple of iterations, I decided that it might look cool if it was given the perspective that you're looking down a hallway or into a box. More perspective would have accented the effect better, but this is where I stopped.
I wish GIMP/GAP had better transformation/rotation options. Nothing ever lines up on center....always have to adjust the layers a pixel or two manually to get it right (then, it's never really right).
