Description

The imsmap program generates map or cloud-like patterns. It looks quite different in monochrome and color.

-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
