-ncolors integer

How many colors to use.  Default 50.

-delay integer

How long to delay between images.  Default 10 seconds.

-delay2 integer

How long to delay between bitmaps.  Default 200000 (0.2 seconds).

-iterations integer

A measure of the resolution of the resultant image, from 0 to 7.  Default 7.

-mode [ hue | saturation | value | random ]

The axis upon which colors should be interpolated between the foreground and background color.  Default random.  

-fps
