Radio Waves

Recommended Posts

Guest timlenton

Trying to recreate the 'radio waves' effect found in after effects.

 

Essentially I want to be able to offset a gradient texture, but radially.

Haven't found a way to do this myself.  Wish there was a way to offset the gradient nodes para metrically.

    We certainly can... it's an interesting problem. In R20 there are probably nodal setups that could do it very easily, but back in R19 I suspect Xpresso might be the only way to go...

     

    I bet @jed can tell you pretty much as soon as he sees it :)
