A sequence defines in which order plugins are run, and which colormaps or images are used. You can modify a sequence through the GUI using the keyboard.
DOWNto scroll the plugin list,
Page downto scroll faster
Enter: insert or remove the plugin
You can change the plugins order in the sequence:
Shift-DOWNto select a plugin in the sequence
Ctrl-DOWNto move the selected plugin up/down in the sequence
Since v3.40, you can change plugin parameters:
Alt-DOWNto select previous/next plugin parameter to change
Alt-RIGHTto decrease/increase plugin parameter value
Alt-Shift-RIGHTto decrease/increase plugin parameter value faster

Sequences are stored in your ~/.lebiniou/sequences/ folder.
Lens mode basically prevents video feedback - these plugins end the sequence, all effects occuring after a lens won’t be reinjected in the next run.
The lens plugins are:
Some plugins (e.g.: cth_[xy]roller, taquin) give nice results with lens mode off.
You can switch the “lens mode” on/off on any plugin in the sequence with
Shift-l. Note: Only one plugin can be in lens mode.
You can control how a plugin effects are melt with the previous one by controlling it’s “layer mode” (think of merging layers in the GIMP):
There are 6 layer modes available:
NOR(Normal): plugin works with defaults
OVL(Overlay): pixels are added to the previous layer, if not null
XOR(XOR): pixels are xored with the previous layer
AVG(Average): takes the average of the layers
RND(Random): takes pixels randomly between the layers (~50% of each will be chosen)
---(NULL): does nothing. pretty useless unless you want to disable a plugin without removing it from the sequence
Select the next layer mode using
Shift-y or reset to the default using
