3d color rotate is a color effect plug-in for iMovie. it allows you to rotate the colors of a clip in RGB color space. in addition to Ã¢â?¬Ë?simpleÃ¢â?¬â?¢ color rotation (i.e. rotate all colors to the origin - black, at 0, 0, 0) you can rotate all colors relative to a specific color (i.e. relative to any color). the use of setting an origin becomes quickly apparent: the origin of a rotation stays the same. thus the origin color, and colors close to it are almost unchanged, while colors further away are changed more.
additionally, the plug-in provides three different ways to handle colors that - after rotation - fall outside the color space.
the results of this effect usually are strange, and border on psychedelic. they are non the less interesting, because even after rotation, the clipÃ¢â?¬â?¢s colors keep their relative distance to each other (well, at least with some of the bounds modes).
What's new in this version:
one of our wierder color effects has made it to universal. 3d color rotate takes a color, and, taking a page out of linear algebra (yes, we like to show off), rotates all colors in a clip around a freely definable origin. very difficult to understand, equaly cool effects. warning: just reading the documentation may make your head hurt. only for hardcore effects users.
