Hey all,

I'm trying to create the look of a cd that rotates on its axis in invigorator and has a rainbow like reflection map.
I've tried creating a rainbow map and applying a radial blur and polar distortion effect, precomping it and using it as a layermap for reflection but it doesn't quite seem to have the level of realism I'm after.

Heres a moving example of what I'm trying to achieve:







Does anyone have any ideas on how to achieve something like this within Invigorator/Ae?

Thanks,

Ben

Hi Ben,

Using a precomp as a layermap is a smart idea - it gives you lots of control to animate the behavior of the reflection. Spending time to build in realism is key.

I would also add some very small glints and glows that enhance the highlights as the disk spins. A little of this will do a lot.
