Hi there everyone,
Here I am once again with a noob question…
I trying to understand how to create a 70s effect with color trails, where each layer has a different color from a rainbow ramp. The goal is to have a number of stacked colorful layers following the first one with a delay (and not a motion blur)
I managed to create an approximative version using cache and cache select, and using a lookup and a ramp to change the color of each “layer”. (see capture and .toe).
rainbow-trail.toe (6.93 KB)
I’m sure there is a way to:
- use a single rainbow ramp with each layer picking the right color
- use another approach for the trail so I could manage the number of layers with a parameter and not by manually creating a cache select for each one of them.
I tried playing with a feedback loop but this not the kind of effect I’m looking for (or maybe I didn’t found the right setup). I think maybe using a texture 3D and a time machine could do the trick, but I didn’t found the solution yet…
Any idea on the best way to achieve this?
