Gradient Layer

Last updated 10.01.2024

The Gradient Layer shows a gradient effect on the specified keys. The gradient can also be animated to move across the keyboard to give a wave effect. If it helps to understand how it works, you can imagine the gradient to be displayed on a (possibly moving) rectangle, and each key acts as a “window” onto that rectangle.
