I’ve got more FUI elements today. I’m really enjoying making these. Pretty soon I’ll have to assemble all of these into one UI and comp them into a shot. At that point I’ll really see how these look as both background elements and as hero elements.
These are just planes undulating to represent different flows or progressions of data or values. I experimented with the shader a bit for these too. When the plane obscures itself, it remains partially opaque and distorts the deeper layers as if the plane was made of an etched glass. It’s subtle but I think it adds a lot to the overall look.
I’ve included a few render passes to help achieve whatever look you might be after. There is a beauty pass, an emission pass if you do not like the partially transparent effect, a transmission pass if you want to increase the rough transparent effect and an always useful z-depth pass. I don’t really ever render anything without breaking out the z-depth pass. Even if I don’t have a plan for it up front, I almost always end up using it in some way.
Each render pass is provided as a ProRes 4444. The resolution of each is 2160 x 2160.
