AE Optical Flares / AE Lights - GOBO Effects
on May 17, 2019 at 6:03:32 am

Hi,

I am looking for help to create Club Lighting. With the effects attached in the screenshots. The lights has shapes in the beam. The Shapes are also track to the light and visible on the floor. Please note I am quite new to AE - Have Optical Flares and the full Trapcode suite.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

I think you need something like Red Giant Lux to do volumetric lights:

If it is the Trapcode Effects Suite you have, then you have Trapcode Lux.

I see what you're saying. In looking at the Lux user guide, it does not appear that there is any way to get a gobo to effect the volumetric part of the light. When I create this sort of effect, I use 3DS Max, which has true volumetric light capabilities, and will accept still or animated gobo masks.

If you have the CC version of After Effects, take a look at Cinema 4D. There may be a volumetric light capability which will accept a gobo. Yes there is:

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to respond - I have found a solution, you are correct true 3D and Volumetric Lighting needed:

For your ref this is the answer using Cinema 4D.



Kind Regards

Dave

I would imagine you can use Trapcode Shine for the rays part of a gobo effect, aligning the center of the shine effect with the light position and put if through a black layer with your gobo in white (or whatever color you are using).
