Spectrum background

I was wondering whether it is possible to use TurboCAD to create high-quality wallpapers. For example like spectrum background: https://www.google.ru/search?q=spectrum+background&newwindow=1&source=lnms&tbm=isch

And without using third-party programs, textures, TC SDK and other "dishonest" techniques. :)

Looks great Vlad,    but got to admit, I'm curious as to whether its done mainly with object colour effects, or different lighting effect.

The task was to get something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYmv1hV7n8w
Instruments: pattern, gradient brushes,  redsdk beam (light beams at a predetermined angle).

Render time - a few minutes

Vlad, have you done this or are you asking if it can be done?

Henry, I'm slightly puzzled. Please pay attention to the signature in the lower right corner.
Yes, I asked myself: can I do this using TC only?  And yes, I did it using TC only.

Just in case: preliminary drafts and video proof are attached. :):):)

OK, Vlad, but it's awfully small :-)

Vlad, this is GREAT!

But I don't want Proof of Concept; I want a Tutorial!

Pretty please?

Of course. If I tell you everything, then you will not be interesting to chat with me :)

Vlad, this is GREAT!
Thanks, Jeff.

But I don't want Proof
Nevertheless I plan to do an animation like   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYmv1hV7n8w

I want a Tutorial!
I, too. Unfortunately I'm not as good writer as Henry or Don, but I'll think about it.

In addition, some users may not like spoilers. :)

I'd be very interested in an seeing an animation Vlad (and looking at the animation file), especially if your going to adjust the intensity etc. of the beams,  I never found a way of  altering luminance properties in RedSDK, and I'm not good enough with SDK to write a custom script to do it, no pressure : ;)

Very cool Vlad!  Can you please post the TCW file, so others can reverse engineer  :)

Not sure what the rules are. This was made by shining several colored Spot lights on an object with "Wrapped Rough" Texture, adjusted so the "roughness" actually consists of fine vertical striations.

I asked Dave not to reveal the secret “how it works” until I prepare a tutorial because:
   1 - "reverse engineering" is evil.
   2 - I hope that somebody will find a solution on their own.

By the way on the beta forum I've already seen interesting ideas ... :)

Very nice effect Henry, to me it look like light movement but wondered if you are also altering intensity.

Neither. All I'm doing is rotating a specially constructed object made with a specially formulated material.
