2.4 Color Theory & Pattern Selection

Color Theory is a body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual effects of a specific color combination. While most color theory is universal, you can choose what you like & play with different setups in your orbit to achieve the desired effect. 

Basic color theory can be understood by picking colors that are compliementary to one another. Complementary colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other, such as red and green and red-purple and yellow-green. These are where you will find the color combos that are most pleasing to the eye.

Flashing Patterns:

There are many combinations of flashing patterns that are used by orbiters and some of them differ from glovers. It is common for orbiters to use a long continuous flash pattern like Ultra Dops, Centerpoint, Tracer, and Chroma mode to create a long tracer like trail. Those flashing patterns coupled with less invasive ones like Dops, Shadow, and Flicker create a diverse trail that is capable of drawing shapes and abstract patterns.

Orbiters hold many modes in their orbits, and they can change flashing patterns and colors at the click of a button. It is recommended to have several modes that you like order, so they can be easily accessed during light shows.

That's everything you need to know about setting up your Orbit for the best light show experience. You're now ready to start learning the basics :)
