I did something similar for Genius: Unternehmen Physik for all the rivers there... but rather in an additive fashion. Highlights seem subtle on one but when 2 (maybe even scaled) layers are moved against each other the add up to a nice random like highlight
Nice idea! I guess today it would be made by a specified value and when a pixel is higher then that a small highlight would be placed there - like post process lensflares.
I noticed a similar effect in Outrun 2 (Really obvious on the first area if you park and look at the water), and I was wondering what the name for the effect was. It's amazing how good this effect looks if the viewpoint is moving at high speed.I was curious enough that I took a few screenshots (Sorry for the low res, I only have the PSP version)http://imgur.com/a/qRGzkWhen animated, it looks like small shifting dark squares when viewed closely.
Thanks for the pictures! I'm not sure...do you mean the bigger white "blops" which are interesected by a random mask?
It looks like it. It seems to be a blue and white surface with the dark mask overlaid.
Hmpf..can't find good youtube footage :,( Would like to see it in motion :( Anyway, thank you very much for mentioning this! :)
The "scribble" mask seems like a good place to hide an Easter egg.
LoL :) Nice idea!
