To achieve the rainbow colors on the Bling component, you can use Visual Scripting to apply random colors to the Color1 and Color2 input in every frame.

In the Visual Scripting panel, there is a Set Color node for both Color 1 and Color 2. You can use the subgraph called GetRandomColor to retrieve a random color that will apply to the color input. The Update event is used to update the color value every frame.

The same technique is used to change the Brightness value of every frame.

In this showcase, a Filter is also used to apply color grading to our effect. In this case, a warm color filter is applied to the screen.

To change the color filter, you can use the LUT Texture component.

Now that you have your own custom LUT texture, you can replace the filter effect by selecting the Filter object in the Hierarchy panel, and then going to the Inspector panel, clicking the Texture input and selecting your custom LUT texture.
