Default Re: Rain Effect

Here's a quick attempt, apart from the blue/grey background and the three frame lightning effect used to mask the moment when the animation recycles, the main elements are two sheets of broken vertical lines.

The FG sheet has slightly thicker lines and moves much further between the first and last frames. The BG sheet moves slower to give an illusion of parallax. Each of the lines has a variety of line and gap lengths and is offset to further increase the illusion.


Hopefully it will give you an idea on how to progress.

Good Luck, Civiliza
