Basically I am trying to replicate this:
For test purposes it can be a cube or a sphere inside a bigger sphere.
Inside sphere/cube don’t need to be transparent. It can have absorbent
material maybe, just to look nicer, or just regular glowing material (as
if it’s a solid object) with soft halo (just around object without
spreading outside too much).
The outer sphere needs to be almost transparent in the center and get more
opaque to the edges (kinda like Fresnel effect) and it needs soft halo
around it. Inside (maybe have another sphere) it should have that
plasma-like effect (those wavy/noisy/wiggly thin lines on the reference
All elements need to glow (to various degree).
I’d like to render it over a floor with reflective material to have blurry
reflection. And if possible, it should be rendering with alpha so I could
superimpose sphere with its reflection over background in GIMP.
Is it something someone can help me with ? (I totally don’t get Cycle’s materials, and it was sooo much easier for me to set this up in-game than in Blender )
