Animation for showing hot / cold liquid going through tubes
on Mar 14, 2012 at 8:44:32 pm

I need to create an animation that illustrates cold liquid flowing through a tube - going through a box and then coming out hot.

I was thinking of animating a loop of a gradient of cool colors on one object and then animating a loop of warm colors on another but don't know how to accomplish this.

It would look something like this but I want to show that there's liquid flowing through the tubes




This image isn't the set-up I'm creating - there's a box where the cold line becomes hot and the hot line becomes cold so this is just a generic representation of how simple the design needs to be.

I just need to know how to animate like a red/orange gradient to illustrate movement of liquid through the tubes.


Thanks much!!!!

I would just create a colored version of that diagrams and an "empty" version then reveal the colored verso by using an image mask. The source of the image mask would be a paint stroke along the tube, animated with the Write On behavior.
