So. I'm teaching myself Blender so i can create interesting videos for my music. I have been doing well so for but I hit a snag.
Using the array modifier it has been quite easy to do interesting stuff especially with and empty in object offset.
this is all fine and dandy but I was wondering how to stagger this animation on the array so the strobe travels along the objects. would I need to offset the emission strength with some math and an empty? I'm not sure where to go from here and have not yet found a solution.
I have tried the solution in this post. possible answer But while the solution does resemble what i'm trying to do it has the problem of showing the gradient on each cube / light source. I'm trying to make each light source solid in color.
A solution i can do for now is add 5 or 10 separate lights and animate them individually, then group them and use an array mod on the group. if possible.
But the scene i'm trying to build is huge. so doing this over and over will take up a lot of time.
