X-Ray Effect In Blender


thumb_02.jpgthe_nr posted about a neat effect he came up with to simulate an x-ray scan.  It involves a blend texture mapped to an animated empty and great use of the compositing nodes.  You can see the main post the describes how it was done here, and the video of the effect (XviD) here (remember to right click and save as).  Nice one the_nr!
