I would appreciate any help from anyone who knows the right way to go about this!
I have tried searching the forums, but it's quite a specific requirement, so I havent had much luck.
I basically need to create a material (that can be animated) that 'flows' over an object, with the leading edge of the material having a glow as it goes.
Sounds complex I know, but i KNOW there must be a way to do it.
Basically the object will start transparent and only reveal itself by way of this material moving over its surface.
Ideally the leading edge (where the material 'appears' as it moves over the object) will also have some amplitude to it (not be straight, but kindof fractalled).
I hope this makes sense to someone! I would appreciate any input from someone who might know how to pull this off!
