Blender: Line Flow

Time for another blender tutorial! We'll use a simple cylinder, a few arrays and the cast modifier to build a nice background clip. Some simple compositing will help us with the final render. Enjoy!

You can see the result on the video below. Please note that for the end result I've also use Z transparency with a Fresnel value of 2 and a Blend value set to 1.25. I've kept the bend modifier as show on the videotutorial but if you want it to be symmetric and all I would suggest deleting the Simple Deform (Bend) modifier. You can (and should) experiment with this a lot to create interesting variations.

Get the final .blend file from Blendswap.
