yin/yang gradients

conceptually what i'm trying to do is create a background that shifts from black to white in a smooth gradient that has foreground material that shifts from white to black in a smooth gradient.

simple sounding enough which works on the edges where i get black background and white foreground on one side and white background and black foreground on the other. But the middle ends up being grey against grey.

Shifting the focus of the gradient seems to only shift where the "invisible" spot is or the degree but doesn't make it disappear. Adding a subtle third colour to the foreground helps too, but to make it clear, the colour then has to be less than subtle and thus becomes invasive.

tricky.

I think that what i'm going to do is change the conception of what i'm doing somewhat and break the foreground into chunks that can easily exist in various areas of the gradient. that's a project that can wait, though. a few games of prolific and then i'm off to bed.
