BlenderWillie - Sketchbook

Working on a template to have transparent blocks switched on and off.

Used “Animation Nodes” to create the grid. Because “Animation Node” does not support material instances I created two identical grids with an “OnMaterial” and an “OffMaterial” for each. So I switch the object visibility on an off using some modulo and integer math.

The colors are managed by setting the vertex color of each object based on its loop index.

I used to play around with transparency an volume scattering some years ago.

some hdri illumination would be beneficial to your visualizations. Also don’t forget about filmic color management.

@m_squared: Thanks for your advice. I kept the environment dark and decent to avoid distracting attention from the emitting objects. I’ll give it a try and see if I can find some HDRIs that fit to the scene.
