Making a rainbow
show user profile  vikki sixx
Hi does anyone have any idea on how to create a realistic looking rainbow using 3dsmax. I am working on a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow graphic.

Thanks
Vic

You want it too look like a rainbow, or be created exactly how rainbows are, by refracting light?

can look cartoon-like but it would be cool if it actually looked like light ... so close to the real thing I guess.

Whatever geometry suits your fancy -an arc, for example-. Gradient ramp on diffuse with the colours, gradient ramp black-white-white in opacity, around .75 -it's a guess- in visibility under obj. properties.

Cheers,

Manolo
