Short de­scrip­tion

The pst-moire pack­age makes it pos­si­ble to very sim­ply cre­ate a va­ri­ety of pat­terns ob­tained ei­ther by drag­ging one pat­tern on an­other, or by ro­tat­ing one on the other. Moire ef­fects some­times look very in­ter­est­ing. This doc­u­ment pro­vides the nec­es­sary com­mands and divers ex­am­ples.


The doc­u­men­ta­tion is bet­ter struc­tured and there were added some more ex­pla­na­tions for each type of moiré

The type=cir­cle gets two new keys to be more flex­i­ble:

n     Number of circles
T     Distance between two adjacent circles in mm

The key Rmax is there­fore out of ef­fect. The im­age width/height is now cal­cu­lated by n x T.

Scal­ing can be done by set­ting the usual PSTricks key unit=.

The type=lin­ear gets two new keys to be more flex­i­ble:

n     Number of the lines -1
T     Distance between the middle two adjacent lines in mm

The key 2 * Rmax is the height of the lines. The im­age width is now cal­cu­lated by n x T.
