Hello, I'm new here...first of all, compliments for this very useful forum and website!
I have a question...does anybody knows if there's a video tutorial online about how to make orbing effect like in charmed?...becuase I found some tutorials but all in English, and for me it's a bit difficult to understand well them becuase I'm Italian..and there's no tutorial in Italian to make that effect...
Thanks!...But I have a problem when I'm making it...because when I click in PIllusion "mask emitter with image(s), and I choose the image where I erased everything around the person, and I click ok, there's written "No images selected" like the image http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/1448/image7gx.gif
And so I can't mask it..How can I solve it? Thanks!
The area emitter mask option uses the alpha channel of the selected image for particle creation, so you need to make sure you use a file format that contains an alpha channel (TGA for example) and that the erasing you did was in the alpha channel, not in the RGB channels.
