Parallelogram Tile

Simulates looking through a kaleidoscope with facets made of parallelograms. This filter
is not automatically animated, but by animating the Angle parameter you can simulate
the effect of twisting the kaleidoscope to rotate the image pattern.

This filter causes rasterization in 3D groups. For more information on rasterization, see
