Porcupine Starburst
« on: September 12, 2017, »
Does anyone have a good method for modelling a porcupine ball display in Vixen 3?  The 2D Starburst model doesn't quite cut it for some sequences.  For a simple example, say I am doing a wipe from top to bottom of the ball.  For this to work properly, all the pixels on all 8 equatorial spokes should display precisely the same colors (no vertical component to these spokes), while the other spokes all have a vertical component in the display.  The top spoke (I am not using an illuminated bottom spoke) has no horizontal component.

None of them handle the 3d portion properly yet.  But doing a couple of matrix with different orientations and overlapping channels can open up some interesting effects.
