The effect of several new stimulus parameters on the perception of a moving plaid pattern (the sum of two sine-wave gratings) were tested. It was found that: (i) the degree of perceived sliding is strongly influenced by the aperture configuration through which the plaid is viewed; (ii) the chromaticity of the sinusoidal components affects coherence in that more sliding is observed when the plaid components differ in hue, and there is less sliding when they are of the same hue; (iii) equiluminant plaids made of components equal in color almost never show any sliding; and (iv) sliding increases with viewing time. The coherence-sliding percept must therefore be influenced by color, by global interactions, and by adaptation or learning effects, thus suggesting a higher-level influence. These results are most easily modelled by separating the decision to carry out recombination from the process of recombination.
