interaggregate(6)	      XScreenSaver manual	     interaggregate(6)

NAME
       interaggregate  -  Visualize  the momentary and aggregate intersections
       between slowly moving circles.

SYNOPSIS
       interaggregate  [-display  host:display.screen]	 [-foreground	color]
       [-background  color]  [-num-circles disc	count] [-growth-delay delayms]
       [-max-cycles maxr]  [-percent-orbits  percent]  [-base-orbits  percent]
       [-base-on-center] [-draw-centers] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION
       The  Intersection  Aggregate  is	a fun visualization defining the rela-
       tionships between objects with Casey Reas,  William  Ngan,  and	Robert
       Hodgin. Commissioned for	display	at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

       A  surface  filled  with	100 medium to small sized circles. Each	circle
       has a different size and	direction, but moves at	the  same  slow	 rate.
       Display:

	   A. The instantaneous	intersections of the circles.
	   B. The aggregate intersections of the circles.

OPTIONS
       interaggregate accepts the following options:

       -num-circles disc count (Default: 100)
	       Number of slowly	moving and growing discs  to  use.   The  more
	       discs, the more CPU power.

       -growth-delay delayms (Default: 18000)
	       Delay  in  ms  between drawing cycles.  More delay, slower (but
	       smoother	and less CPU intensive.)  art.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
	       to get the name of a resource file that	overrides  the	global
	       resources stored	in the RESOURCE_MANAGER	property.

       BUGS

       Setting the background to anything besides black	confuses the intensity
	       algorithm and will look terrible.
