Why is the right side of images made with analog video synthesizers often more heavily modulated?
What the curtain does would be a good example of what I mean. The shadow is always on the right side of the edge. But also when adding modulation in other cases, the right side of the image is always more affected by it than the left side.
I can imagine that since the image is built up from left to right, any mathematical operation on the signal can only affect the part of the signal that comes next, which is on the right side.
But if that is the case I would think the effect could also be applied to the lower part of the image. So, for instance, why isn’t it possible to have the shadow the Curtain produces beneath the edge in stead of on the right? Is that not possible because of how it works or is that a design choice?
