I've been playing around with more advanced graphics these days (beyond the basic 2D UI and image effects that the iOS platform offers), and I'm wanting to implement a visual effect similar to how iOS's Siri uses what appears to be a "color nebula" in the background.
Here's a video of it in action. Seeing it animated is pretty important given that it's a dynamic effect.
Over time, the colors and intensity change, and various areas bloom and fade colors in. It's very subtle and has this ambient feel to it.
Anyway, I'm working in SceneKit, Apple's 3D scene composition API, and it has access to anything from Core Image to OpenGL to Metal as far as shaders and filtering geometries. So I'm curious if there is a general purpose algorithm for this kind of a) color effect (changing hue and other properties) and b) the slow, nebulous way colors come in and out and move around.
What techniques can one employ to pull of this animated visual effect?
I'd also love to read any additional resources about various ways to use colors and blending in graphics to achieve interesting effects.
