Make a tree explode in Motion 4? good tutorials?
on Jul 12, 2011 at 12:15:48 am

In the theme for a game at the summer camp I do videos for, there is a bad guy who enters through a "portal", which is a hollowed out tree. I want the portal to explode for a video at the end of a game.

Any recommendations of how to make this tree explode in a cool epic way? I was thinking of masking off the tree and then maybe some kind of particle accelerator or something?

I would like to use the Particle Metrix plug in but it puts a background logo in the trial version and we can't afford to buy it.


Suggestions or good tutorials anyone can recommend? I also have After Effects, which I've learned basics but am less familiar with.


Thanks

If you get Patrick Sheffield's book "How To Cheat In Motion" you'll learn how to create ParticleMetrix-style effects using just Motion's built-in capabilities.
