Nice FX. You can apply to particle Layer too. change the effect to DizzySpiral and you can create a dance floor lighting effect.

Nice effect try with sphere or donut.

Can we have more colors setting?

bylaw, 12 years ago

I have updated this effect:
1) the 2nd slider of the FX BLACK HOLE property now controls the soft border
2) the FX SPECULARITY property has an higher range
3) the specularity colour can be set with the new FX SPECULARITY COLOUR property
4) an additive version is included

When using the additive version make sure to set the picture layer to SINGLE SIDED with the 3rd dropdown below the textbox or else it will look to bright because the back is also rendered.

Click on the DOWNLOAD MEDIA FILES button at the top of this article to download the new versions.
