Light spectrum beam with Trapcode Particular
on Mar 20, 2017 at 6:24:17 pm

Hi
Is it is possible to create a light spectrum beam coming out of a prism with Trapcode Particular?
I want to build something more realistic then the classic Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon cover abstract.
The blending of the light colors should be smooth.
The sprectrum beam should come out of a glass 3D prism that I made in C4D.

Any help is appreciated.

Kind regards
Jean

you can use a layer as an emitter, and particles from that layer can take on color from that emitter layer.

so by animating a layer emitter that has the colors that you need, with setting that leave a trail of particles (essentially setting particle velocity to 0), i think it could work for you.

Hi Kevin,
thanks for your answer and sorry for returning this late but have been in hospital for a while.
However I tried your suggestion and it worked as a solution.
Kind regards
Jean
