Excentro - a program for creating decorative guilloche elements. Is the embodiment of an abstract guilloche machine. Thanks implemented in Excentro mechanical analogy, to study the program will acquire additional clarity, simplicity and ease. Building guilloche elements in Excentro has a tree >hierarchical> structure, which allows fast, at any stage, to adjust the shape of the entire design by changing only one parameter.
Guilloche pattern - only part of a package of measures designed to protect against counterfeiting. Further increase the reliability can (and should) using, for example, special types of paper, foil, a metallization and a hologram that is even more preferable since visible to the naked eye. In fact, hardly anyone will be able to reproduce from memory patterns, say, a 50-ruble banknote, as not even looked into them. Obviously, the practical value of guilloche for ordinary people is quite controversial. On the other hand, the presence of a specialist to determine the authenticity of the pattern, which explains its presence in all more or less important documents.
Excentro - the editor - for designers working on the platform Masintosh. It has a small, but sufficient set of functions to create guilloche decoration compositions. It should be noted immediately that it is not designed to protect documents, it is impossible to use custom functions and set the picture as a modulating function. Despite these limitations, existing in Excentro is implemented perfectly. Deserves special praise elaborate, neat interface, where there is no huge control panels - as a result you find you are interested in setting instantly.
A distinctive feature Excentro - special panel Structure, in which all communications between objects are displayed in schematic form, taking into account the established hierarchy. In each block, which plays the role of the building blocks of the composition, displaying all defined parameters to it - with the help of this panel is easy to analyze the whole structure of the pattern. At sufficiently complex embodiment, this visibility can play a cruel joke: a line showing the relationship between the objects begin to merge, which complicates the process of editing. Note that in Excentro clear division on the envelope and fill not - there are only two concepts: base (Base) and derived from it (in the terminology of the program - Element). Understand what in this case is a particular object can be only on the basis of its position in the structure pane: if it is on the second stage, this envelope, if the third - the element required. To control the parameters of all the components of the composition serves panel Excentro Control. In the Type tab contains the basic attributes of the selected element in the Global - its global modifiers, and Local - modifiers of local importance. By the way, in a few unusual names Excentro some controls: under Scale V, for example, the amplitude of the hidden functions (although it certainly made for reasons of unification parameters). The feature set, though concise, but ample, the base can be in the form of a circle, line, rectangle, and spiral. From the standard means of constructing the remaining elements - sine, cycloid, eight, and saw the line. With regard to the filler, then as a stand or sine (sin wave), or objects continuously flowing from one envelope to the other (superpose). For finer control of the settings are the Step and Repeat (FX tab in the control panel) - to access them, click on the triangle at the top of the control panel. In order to assess the real result (taking into account the thickness of the lines), you must switch to the Preview (enabled by default Artwork, showing only the geometry).
Of note the use of the advanced features of the object of a special Directive, which corrects the shape of a given curve, aligning the direction of its tangent with his. It will be useful when using a database as a rectangle (in the corners of the tangent is not defined, and therefore the behavior of the derivative of the curve of her at these points may not be as expected).
Serious drawback Excentro - lack of support color. In fact, try to create an interesting composition using only one black lines when in front of you on the screen - a thick lace curves. Here it is without a certain flair can not do. The finished result is exported in the format AI, then it is assigned a color in any program edit vector image.
