I'd like to create a series of circles of different colors that grow and spread out, giving the feel of falling through a tunnel of colors (like some psychadelic 60's animation). Has anyone done this? What are some suggestions?

I have access to Photoshop, if that makes it any easier. Thanks.

I'd use a shape layer with the Repeater path operation.

Actually, rather than try to explain in words, I'll just make a project an upload it.

[*two minutes of playing with a shape layer*]

Here you go.

Shape layers are fun, easy, and incredibly deep. Check 'em out.

It's a good start, but I only have CS3 and couldn't open the file... Could you show it a different way? I'm going to need visuals for this.
