Looping (Tiled) Background using TileIwa Effect

This is a quick test of the TileIwa fx node that (amongst other things) can make one screen full of background appear to continue on and on and on… seemingly forever.

Note:  The “Iwa” in the fx nodes name stands for the programmer Shun Iwasawa so don’t let that confuse you.  He’s the one that pointed me to the effect when I posted a feature request in the OpenToonz Google Group.  No new feature needed if there is already something adequate available!

In this case I have just a few randomly doodled clouds but the general goal/idea is to create backgrounds that appear to rotate around and pick up where they left off as a camera exceeds 360 degrees.

At any rate… here’s a few lines turned into many via this very useful effect.

If you look closely there is a slight seam between tilings.  A marigin can be defined but I thought I set that correctly.  I’ll have to investigate that.
