The Mapping feature deforms the current screen image to follow the contours of complex variable functions. It uses a variation of Phase Plotting, which is a technique for visualizing complex funtions. For Liquib, the only purpose is to produce interesting picture contortions. A complex number is composed of both real and 'imaginary' parts, commonly represented in the form z = a + bi, where a is the real value and b is the imaginary value (i is the square root of -1). The Mapping Menu provides a selection of Complex Variable Functions in terms of the complex variable z. Click the button on Edit Tools (or type the F12 key) to toggle Mapping on/off. Right-click to access the Mapping Menu.
Mapping activity is recorded with Scripts, and the captured Mapping Actions can potentially be altered via the Script Control and Editing screen. Mapping can optionally be included with Automatic Effects. Use the Maps tab of the Configuration screen to control how often Mapping should be applied, and which Map Functions are available for random selection.
