    Finally lets see the fade 3d effect


    fade_3d='N'

    fade_3d='Y'

    fade_3d='Y'. If you take the total number of strings and divide by the number ofstrings you will in the spiral. So i have 32 strings that i am using as a half megatree. So even though i will only have 16 strings, i use the maximum string count from the rgb target,32.
    32 strings divided by 4 spirals = 8 strands per spiral


    So we will set the thickness value to 8.
