A concept show with a "special effect" Chinese Fan.

I never made a show with this effect, but it is that time of the year.
In this show are several textures that will appear when needed as texture for the fan.

These textures are in the colourmap layer.
First I put the textures on there temporarily positions and save this as a show. In the new Show where the ChineseFan effect was going to be shown, I added a colourmap layer pressed CTRL + M to put the show in and on the ChineseFan layer added with F9 this colourmap as Texture.

Now I could move the texture's in the Colourmap at a time of my choosing to appear and could see the result directly. That is the power of the Colourmap.

Things to note are:
Once the show is in a Colourmap layer in another show then the changes you make are recorded in the show your now working on.
The old show that you made to be used as this colourmap therefore remains the same.
Also you cannot double click on material in the render window that are in the colourmap to active a layer because it is one texture now.
If you want to see how the now newly edited Colourmap show looks like then you can extract it as a show file by pressing CTRL + B.

The textures I used came out of a CopyRight Free Photoshop .Psd file and isolated what I needed and made them white and save them as transparent .Png format. I often save materials in White because in Blufftitler white can become any colour.

Use it, Change it, Learn from it.
And as always, Questions are welcome.

Komies, how can I transfer a container from a show to another project that I'm doing, only the container that interests me, the other containers do not interest me, can it be transferred? I appreciate your guidance.

Jesus, 3 years ago

Like this:

Delete all layers except that container layer and save the show under a different name in the same folder. Now open the show you want the container in and press CTRL + M and select the newly saved container show. That's it.

Good luck and have fun.

komies, It's detailed explanations like this that should be added to the User Manual.
