Repeaters and colour

Hi

Anyone know how I could fill each element of my repeater with a different colour?

Imagine I have 10 boxes appearing via a shape layer and repeater, can I have each of those boxes be a different colour? I've tried using a gradient fill, but I can't get hard stops between each colour change. There is always a smoothing effect, it stops at 95%.

Thanks

From this thread [link]:
Nope. They are instances of the one shape. The best you can do is have the shapes be black. Duplicate it and set the bottom layer to be white. Then change the opacity on the repeater of the black layer. This will have them Chang from black to white. Then add the colorama effect that will take the b/w gradient and change it to any colors you want.

There is also this:





I hope that helps.

Just to add to the suggestion above. You can do this without duplicating the layers or shapes. Just create your repeated shapes, choose any color. Adjust either the Start Opacity or End Opacity to 0, leave the other at 100, so that they range from completely opaque to completely solid.

Then Apply colorama. In the Input Method section, choose Alpha in the Get Phase From menu. Now a full color spectrum will be applied to your shapes. To gain more control and to stop the interpolation of colors do the following

Open the Output cycle settings. Deselect the Interpolate checkbox. Then simply add as many colors to the Output Cycle that you need and change the colours to whatever you want them to be. Colours can be animated by animating the Output Cycle.
