I have a very interesting problem to solve.
I’m trying to use Blender in order to create an image or an animation that has only one feature: The color should be a function of distance from the camera.
For instance, the closer an object is to the camera, the whiter it is, and the further away it is from the camera, the darker it is.
In short, the image/animation should only contain information about the distance from the camera.
I tried manipulating the lighting to make this happen. I put a spot lamp at the same location as the camera and pointing in the same direction. This created problems with “pointy” shapes such as a cube.
Is there any script/tool/plugin that can perform this operation?
Does anybody have a suggestion on, maybe, more intelligent light manipulation that would actually make this work?
Thanks in advance,
