Matching big hex at HD high-res

At 1920 x 1440, Zoom FF param should be (log(0.997395 * 3) + 1) / 2 = .737994
Must also compensate line width! Should be 3 * 6 = 18
Perfect match with WhorldFF, Kaleidascope and Tile. Problem lies further down the signal chain.
Timeblur is also a perfect match, Solarize is also fine, the problem is with Glow.
Hypothesis: if resolution is doubled, inner and outer radius must both be doubled also.
Result: It works fine up to 1280 x 960. At 1600 x 1200 and above, Glow exhibits unexpected behavior.
Bummer. Looks like we're limited to 1280 x 960.

NOTE that you can't change the desired frame rate in the options dialog without also compensating master speed, otherwise all the automations will be off, e.g. if you double the frame rate you must also double master speed.
