Applet Tutorials: Tunnel

This applet creates a tunnel with a selected texture mapped onto it. Another version of tunnel is available in the name of tunnel 2 applet.

[For more technical information about the available parameters, click here.]

Most parameters are self-explanatory and you can always see brief description of each parameter by moving the mouse pointer over the wizard.

First set a mapping image, applet size and the image resolution for the project. The resolution value higher than 1 stretches the map over the tunnel. I recommend you not to use too big image for the best result.

Next, select the motion of the tunnel. There are 8 possible motion such as:

1) advance
2) back
3) anticlockwise rotation
4) clockwise rotation
5) advance + clockwise rotation
6) advance + anticlockwise rotation
7) back + clockwise rotation
8) back + anticlockwise rotation

Next, you can position the camera either at inside the tunnel (effect no.1) or outside of the tunnel (effect no.2) at "Effect" parameter.

Then, you can choose if you want to enable textscroll over the tunnel effect by checking "Enable textscroll".

"Aspect ratio" parameters control the inclination of the tunnel, while Start values give the start point of the internal calculation and you should NOT change the default values. This may be obscure, but trust me. We provide the optimised setting for these values. If you change these values, the result will not be what you expect.

Proceed to the textscroll menu if you have checked the textscroll box; otherwise go to the expert menu.
