Camera with a bit of flare

Camera with a bit of flare.

On the actual face there is an animation on wake of the lens aperture opening, check it out and let me know what you think.


Did you consider doing aperture without animation, but instead with rotation of geometric elements?

It’s on my list of things to try at some point …

Cool idea and very nice animation!

@andrew.dowden’s idea could be interesting as well.

That would be interesting and a challenge. I will have to do some experimenting. Unfortunately I no longer have access to a CAD package only photoshop. Could you recommend a free CAD package?

I use Inkscape, vector-graphics, free, and rendered to what ever res. you want.

And not forgetting:


I will check out the inkscape. Thanks for all the diagrams etc. Cheers Wayne

I used Inkscape a lot by the past, very great software … unfortunately the only available 32bits version doesn’t work anymore with my Mac (64bits mandatory !).
I use now Gimp which is also a free and quite powerfull software, quite similar to Photoshop.
