My good friend gave me a material/cascade primer, so I will now attempt to create a few effects. However he restricted me to use basic shapes and materials to begin with. I also have a restriction on what functions to use in Cascade. I think that's a great idea since it makes me focus on the movement and the effect itself instead of flashy eye candy. Looking forward to familiarize myself with cascade and upload the results. This is a completely uncharted territory for me. These are the shapes I will use.
