Working with Custom Patterns

The MCTE internal API allows us to further develop and sell patterns separately, all you have to do in order to use them as patterns for the MCTE instances, is to drag them inside your project library and use their name as values for the customPattern parameter of the MCTE. As stated before, we sell patterns that are not initially included inside the MCTE. You can purchase those patterns without the MCTE, but they will be useless without it.

We also do develop patterns for direct customers, who want a special custom developed pattern for a specific transition. In order to get a custom developed pattern just send us an email.

Square Pack Pattern List

MCTE Transition Types

Description/Value : Preset
Performs square effects on different patterns, similar to the included SquareScale pattern.
Supports show/hide (A) transitions.

Gain parameter functionality: normally, sets the time delay between the appearing of the next square in matrix, or not used.
tweenDuration for SquareFade means Frames, for SquareAlpha and SquareMS means Milliseconds.

  • customParam1:String (numerical value) - square width in pixels (Default:40)
  • customParam2:String (numerical value) - square height in pixels (Default:40)
  • customParam3
    • SquareFade pattern doesn’t use a customParam3
    • SquareAlpha pattern uses the customParam3 as hexa Number for coloring the upper cover layer of every square. (e.g. "0xFF0000")
    • SquareMS pattern uses the customParam3 as String (numerical value) for the number of the square overlay shapes used.

Quick Tip

You can make pretty interesting animations using the possibility to set the height and width of the rectangles separately, and combine that with the customized tweening.
