I have decided to do some kind of kaleidoscope visual as my friend Al has one and I do not. I found Jim Bumgardener's example on the internet and used the ideas to create my own kaleidoscope.
It uses the particle system (upgraded a bit) example from earlier. The code creates a particle system and sets it as the source for the kaleidoscope which uses bitmaps to copy from the source movie into each segment of the 'scope.
If you want to look at the code, it's here. Note that there is not a shred of ActionScript on the timeline.
Hope you like it Al.
