This is based on an experiment with a 'frame' component and a 'kaleidoscope' component combined with a 'refraction' component. This is a combination that others have used in various filters and I just wanted to see what else could be done with this combo. A little more has been added for variety, but the basics are those three components.I'm not really sure what use some may put this to, but I found these enjoyable to view and hope you will as well.Anti-aliasing is turned off in all of the presets, so you may wish to turn some back on for better smoothing.And, like a lot of my pattern and artistic filters, I do not re-map the controls. This leaves the filter open to creating some real weird or undesirable results, but leaves more creativity within the filter. I prefer this trade-off in this type of filter.
