Chromatic aberration effect?

  • Hi Aaron, it's definitely possible to get this effect with multiple cameras and Post effect. Here's a step by step guide to get you started. And since it's a bit complicated, here's an example project to get you started:

    • Create a new camera. Objects panel: Add New -> Camera
    • Set the Camera's input texture to the Device Camera Texture
    • Create a new From Camera texture. Resources panel: Add New -> From Camera -> Select your newly added camera. This will give you a texture that reflects the new camera
    • Add a new Post Effect. Objects panel: Add New -> Post Effect
    • Assign the new Post Effect with a color table that represents just blue or just red. More info on making Post Effect can be found here:
    • Note: Lens Studio comes with a lot of fun built in Post Effects in Resources -> Add New -> Post Effect
    • Next on your post effect set it to a new render layer by selecting Layers -> Add New and make sure Layer 1 is checked
    • You new camera, make sure it only renders Layer 1 by unchecking Default Layer and making sure Layer 1 is checked on the Camera component
    • Create a billboard. Objects Panel: Add New -> Billboard
    • Assign the billboard's texture to your new camera's From Camera texture
    • Adjust the alpha of the billboard lower than 1 so you can see through it. You might also want to play with different blend modes
    • Offset and scale the billboard so it's offset from the source image

  • Hi Travis,

    not my topic but nonetheless, I will be using this for sure. Thanks so much for the instructions. Now all we need is microphone input and rig the horizontal gap between blue and red with input volume value ;) Can imagine a lens like this at some festivals would look cool.

    Cheers guys,
