    Default This is my latest creation

    This is my latest creation, let me know if you think it would work well in real life:

    http://www.vimeo.com/15743865

    Its an extremely complex effect.

    I've added a bit of trance just as a random background to make viewing it more interested. Super8 & Tab "Black is the new Yellow" in case your wondering.

    This isn't one I'm going to release publically but I have a few others I may put on the FTP. I can't test though so you'll have to let me know if ok.

    As most are based on existing beam effects I don't forsee any scanner isuues.

    Colours are too busy...
    Shape too simple, but effective...

    You could make that in LivePro in about 8 seconds...

    Sorry!

    Question

    8 seconds in LivePro? Really? I've got LivePro, and I'm not sure I could pull that off in 5 minutes, let alone 8 seconds.

    It's much more than a simple color-cycle effect. It looks like the fan starts out as a single color and then it transitions to a single rainbow effect, then it multiplies several times until you have at least 4 iterations of the rainbow colors repeating throughout the fan...

    You're sure you can set that up in LivePro in 8 seconds? Because if you can, I'd love to learn how... Please post details!

    It porbably can be done fairly quickly in Live Pro but you're right Adam, its not as simple as it looks.

    With every step of the fan the colours are multipying and switching places. The size of the individual fan elements are not equal either, some are wide and some narrow and again they're switching around. After the 1/2 way point the same occurs but in reverse ie they're still switching but reducing until at the highest point you're back to a single segment coloured fan which is where you started at the bottom.

    I'm not saying its massively difficult to achieve, but there's a lot more changing than when 1st meets the eye when you look carefully as its number of segments, width of segments, colour of segments progating upwards in number to the mid point then reversing but even I'm not sure its identical here as it reduces back down again using the same variables.

    Overall I'm not sure how this will look on display, but the idea was to create a really intense effect that was mesmerising and an attack on the senses.

    Would it not look better Al if you showed the result from your projector?
