Heat Distortion Emitter ?
on Jan 11, 2006 at 3:22:37 pm

Hi All

Does an emitter exist that emulates Heat Distortion - I have used an existing emitter to simulate a jets exhaust gasses and flames, but want the accompanying distortion effects. This effect will be used primarily on static images.

Any help will be appreciated - please be aware that i'm a 'newbie' at creating new effects.....;-)

Thanks

Angela

I don't know of any emitters in the libraries specifically designed as a heat wave emitter, but any emitter that shoots out smoke at a fast rate can be converted to do this pretty quick. You can probably duplicate one of the particle types you're using in the emitter for the jet's exhaust, then make the particles a little larger.

In the Colors tab of the emitter's properties, turn on Get Color from Layer, and check Update Color beside it. That will create the distortion of the background image.

Thanks Elvis

I've tried what you said, but it doesn't seem to work :-(

Can I send you the project file with the background image for you to look at ?

Best

Angela

Just set the emitter's color settings to:

- Get Color from Layer
- Update Color from layer

here's an example - just add your own picture behind it:

It's expolained in the help files in tutorial 3 "get color from layer."

Hoe this helps.
