Matrix texture plugin


(Goofster) #1

well, the topic speaks for itself. has anyone experimented with this? i desperately need one for a major compositing project.
so two questions:

  1. has anyone made this already? (i couldnt find it)

  2. Anyone wanna make this? I’m not really into programming these things. if someone DOES decide to make it, I will write a tutorial about it.

the texture has to be animatable.

looking forward to hearing something from you

Excuse me for being ignorant, but no, the topic doesn’t speak for itself.

i know what your talking about looks at his forum name. The bullet and the distortion thing?

i have tried to do this w/o a plug-in but just doesn’t do it right. Maybe the refraction plug-in might do the trick, i havn’t really used many b4, just the field of depth one.

I think this is the effect that you are after.

Someone else did an animation with a skeleton in a Matrix-like animation. You may want to email the website directly. I don’t think there was a plug-in, but it may have been the warp plug-in

Actually I’m pretty sure what he wants is the scrolling text thing.
Like the screensavers you can download.

I was thinking along the lines of scrolling text as well. And thought that the most easy way of doing it really ought to be screen capturing a bunch of versions of a matrix text screensaver, layering those to get the depth sense and bam, off ya go. Of course, it will kill diskspace, but its easy, and can be made loopable quite easily…

yeah, sorry. I thought the title spoke for itself but obviously it doesn :smiley: (of course, i cant take into account every dumb sedwish guy out there :smiley: J/K)

I indeed meant the scrolling text. I have been fiddling with normal movie textures, but i couldnt find the strange font type.
thanks for the idea Macke, I will definately try that.

Heck no, it’s very hard to keep with the high IQs and superior brains of the Holland Elite Blender Bunch :stuck_out_tongue:

I suggest using A video compositing package - Under linux I use Broadcast2000c - (Windows suggestion anybody)
I have written a script that converts sgi files with alpha channels to a quicktime movie with alpha channel

for use with broadcast2000c

Yeah, the ones with superior market strategies and such. Go Holland! I wonder if a lot of companies in holland base their strategies upon making people dissatisfied…

This is for Maya, so I don’t know how much help it will be, but it is the Matrix Text Scrolling Effect.

This is the effect the person using Maya got out of it.

Once again, I’m not sure it can work in Blender, but it’s worth a try.

And if not, why don’t u just create the letter “A” for example, create two duplicates but put their transparency down, that may work.

Then all you have to do is “ALT - P” the two duplicates to the original and send the original falling down the screen.

Or, send the original hurling down there and put motion blur on, hey, it may work.

Hope that’s been a help, and I’d like to see what u come up with :smiley:
