I am working on an application in which objects in the scene are in various states.A sample scene can be seen here .
I want to represent active objects brightly and the inactive/terminated ones are in a dull state.
There is also an intermediete stage in which an object is running.I want to highlight the running objects.
How can i do this in panda?
For the first one i wanted to use transperancy, but the transperancy does not seem to have any effect when the model is textured. The other option is to use a glow filter, but i do not have a graphics card on my laptop, so that doesn’t work.I tried using ambient light(white) and a spotlight(white) to highlight the bright object, but the object is not very bright enough( compared to the brightness generated by the glow filter). I tried using 2 spotlights,but that does not make the object more brighter. Are there any other ways of highlighting objects?
I am clueless as to how i can show running objects.I am thinking about adding a yellow border to the object, but can i do that without changing the model?Any other suggestions for representation are welcome. I thought of using a special coloured spotlight, but the colours of spotlight produce myraid colours when they fall on an object.
