This isn't quite what Rusty is looking for in his other thread but I'll show it none-the-less... a fly-over of the Aurora curtain effect. Basically two gradient combiners are used to fade out the top and bottom and in the middle is a turbulence combiner, stretched vertically and animated in the chor to move through the mesh of the curtain to give it the undulating look.

Ooooo nice. Could also vary the colors and if ya add some bones here and there, animate the vertical scaling of the patches, and overall shape for more dynamics.

Yeah, there are a lot of variations possible. this is really just the bare bones with tons of potential.

That's KOOL! If I can figure it out (I'm on V14c and probably can't open the .prj file) I'll likely use it!

Yeah that's pretty awesome. If you add more turbulance and change the opacity, maybe add some reflection, you might have a good "mirage" effect going there.

You should be able to open that in V13 or later. You might get a warning, but it should at least open.

Excellent effect! If put in the right angle with enough overlay and darkened down a bit, would really look like the real thing! Thanks Robert!!!

I have hours and hours of organized free Video tutorials on Data DVD. Because Storage and bandwidth are an issue its difficult to give these for free as they not only cost me money I can not pay for delivery and the time it takes to burn them for you. I will send you all the free organized video tutorials regarding AM I have. The link below will help you get the ball rolling.
