    Default Mamba black sine waves?

    I have Mamba standard but can still view shows produced on Mamba black ok. I wondered how Mamba black can produce sine wave effects????
    I say this because I downloaded the "hey st. peter" show from the medialas website and this uses a single frame (of a circle) to produce a full show 3 and half minutes. One of the effects is 2 sine waves. On closer inpection the standard scene line also has an effect line too? What is this? This is uses to modulate the circle. I can not seem to change this in standard Mamba, is this just an option you get with Mamba Black?? If so I have not seen it within the manual?
    Does anyone have any further info with regard to producing sine waves in Mamba Black??

    Many thanks

    Mamba trick #23

    wawe-like effect

    Draw half a circle, from 9 oclock to 3 oclock, as large as possible.

    From: xrot=0 yrot=30 xsize=125
    to: xrot=360 yrot=30 xsize=125

    Excellent, thanks for that, gives a nice effect. I found that is you creat a circle, yrot=30 from and to you get a sort of simple lissajous generator, especially if you decrease time to 1/25s!

    Thanks Bart, that's what I thought. So there is an option to add an effect track, but not in the standard Mamba!
