Animated Shadow Skin
Description: That's right. I never did post this.

This is a 2 second animation I did a while back to simulate the skin of a B5 Shadow Ship. It's uncompressed so the file is about 5 meg.

its cool, the way the animated material acts it looks as if it interacts with itself, as if a wave. this would probably look really cool on a ship or a face :D

I actually have the ambiance turned up so it's more visible. This 'crawling skin' effect, combined with their almost pitch black look, is what made those ships so creepy.

ON A FACE!!!!!! ARE YOU NUTS?! YIKES! I just had an image pop into my head of a hideous face with this crawling skin and the eye I just posted. Now I'm SCARED!!!!!!! <Spek crawls back under the bed> And I'm NEVER coming out again! NEVER!!!!!!!!

This animation doesn't work for me. Looks like a TV set out of sync.

That's the closest I was able to come to the actual effect they used on the show. I did it quite a while ago. This was actually a test animation with a duration of 2 seconds

Looks like a pretty good match to me. The animation works fine on my pc. I wonder if they used similar algorythems to create the SFX for the series. I guess we will never know...

I assume they did it similarly to the way I did, by rotating the 2 similar Voronoi Dist. noise patterns in two different directions. It took me a while to get it this close. It really looks cool applied to one of the shadow ship models.
