Trying to make my own version of movie end credits similar to the Bourne Supremacy (2nd Bourne film).
How would you suggest I approach this animation? What is the overall work flow I should use?
Tried a variety of approaches so far including:
A sliding emitter object trailing halos dense enough to look like a line
Hand animated extruding pipes
Static planes being lit by animated spot lights running along the path
Blend texture using a ramp color, trying to keyframe the x axis offset
None of these approaches are delivering the intended effect, but I’m not experienced enough to know if I’ve chosen the wrong approach, or if I just need to keep refining and learning one of the approaches above or something else entirely.
Are there any experienced Blender-ers who can suggest a viable path to achieving the animated highlighted line effect?
