Animated Alpha Texture Materials For Neons Primarily Futuristic Or Sci-Fi Or Various Other Use

by hknoblauch in Surfacing

Please see the video above!

What is this product?

The pack consists of the following:
Over 25 animated alpha textures, all in mp4 format and at 2048 resolution
1 square format pre made screen consisting of a compilation of animated alphas
1 square format pre made screen same as above, but built in such a way that it can be split in 2 horizontally, providing 2 different long format screens.
All animated alphas are connected to the alpha slot, in Blender's principled shader, with leaving the diffuse and emission slot open for color selection as you see fit. 
For onscreen display, all materials are set to "Alpha Blend" in the settings area.
All maps have "cyclic" checked on - in other words auto loops
All maps have "auto-refresh" checked on - in other words updates in viewport

Why does animated alphas make sense to buy?

This save labor intensive work trying to animate or make your own alphas. And with the diffuse color being adjustable, it also means you get much more use out of the provided files. It is a quick plug and play way of letting the creator create without getting bogged down.

What are the different animated alphas currently:
As you can see from the reference sheet, currently the majority are science fiction orientated, but with more to soon follow for other categories.

Can I pack / unpack mp4 texture files?
No, however, when the blend file as well as the mp4 texture files are located in the same directory, blender will navigate to the files itself.
