    There are now three more prompts on the butterfly effect.


    They are
    background_chunks: You put a number here of how many chunk to divide your color range into
    background_skip: You put a number to indicate how of the above chunks to skip before your background color is applied
    background_color: You put the color to override here, #000000 - #FFFFFF


    So it may be easier to show by example.


    We start with the background feature disabled. This is done by setting background_chunks=0
