anyone knows how to do something like this in Blender?
I’m not referring specially to simulate night traffic. I’m referring to simulate in Blender the behavior of photographic film when exposed during a long time range.
My first idea was:
- use the VSE, apply glow effect, create metastrip
- duplicate the same metastrip and offset 1 frame with add blending mode and create metastrip
- duplicate metastrip, add blending mode
and so on. But this is so tedious and I think useless to in order to take control over the process. I could use simply GIMP and add sequenced images as layers with add blending node, but I want to work with an easily animatable technique.
Any ideas on how to achieve this using vse, nodes or another workaround or hack? I could too use particles to achieve te effect, but I want to discover or know a light-based workflow, not a particle-like-based workflow.
perhaps another app as cinepaint can combine hundreds of sequenced images working with its exposure data or at least with its brightness values?
