Magic Book

Make this for CGBOOST challenge. Well this is for sure some black magic book. I experience so much bugs and … weird stuff during work. Often redo stuff or remake them from scratch.
I plan to render this is Cycles, but I was unable to make planes with “magic” effect truly transparent, mean they cast shadow. In Eevee all work fine, but in Cycles… YT do not help this time, so I switch to Octane in last moment :frowning: On the end I finish couple minutes before end, have time for one short sentence in work description :smile:
