Any ideas how to create this animated background?

Hi,

Creating a title sequence for a friend's short film. It's been shot in film, anamorphic so I need to create a fresh version.

I understand how to create the masked shapes that are flashing on and off, so thats ok.

But.. how can I create the coloured light bars, using a similar pallette, to those in the above clip?

And also do the cycling colours?

Should I be working in 32bpc to achieve this look?

Thanks in adv!

Eugene

Cripes, you could work in 8-bit for that stuff. As for the colors, you could just make chips of the colrs you want, make it a guide layer, then turn it on & off as desired.
It's not exactly automatic to make an animation like this. You could make the black outlines as masks, then move masked solids around using hold keyframes.

In order to see multiple colors on a layer you need to first apply a texture. I struggled with this for a while, the following really helped me, there are some really useful techniques and tips here. https://goo.gl/xWZpdg

One approach might be:

On a solid layer apply a gradient layer stlyle (gradient overly > colors > edit gradient) and make all the stripes this way.

I would then experiment with various colors adjusting effects. Colorama can be lots of fun and might be what you are looking for....

Thanks for the input, this post is a few months old now, but I do still need to get it done so this is still heplful to me!

I'll try the layer style route, combined w Colorama. not sure quite how to cycle through the colours, but I need to play with it for a while to see how it works.

Many Thanks
