Hey guys, just wondering if there are any good Electricity emitters out there for PI3. I've downloaded most of the libraries from the site but the only thing that I can see that comes close is the lightning emitters and they don't really do the job. What I'm looking for is something that's rendered and similiar in style to the lightning render in AE and Premiere, but something that looks alot better obviously.

Thanks in advance guys...

Since PI has no electricity pattern generator. The least thing you should do to be finding the reference of real lightning graphic you want. And draw the similar but fractal animated textures yourself. If the libraries you downloaded do not fulfill your requirement.

This is done using Ulead Media Studio Pro to generate a lightning video with a black BG.
You can download a trial version of this.

This Video is then used as a material in a 3D application.
I used maxon cinema 4D.
You make 2 cubes, one slightly larger than the other.
On the smaller inner cube you place the material of your choice ..I used metallic Gold.
On the outer cube you place the lightning video.
You need to use an alpha channel so that the non arc part of the lightning video is transparent allowing the smaller cube to be visible.
The texture offset of the video material is animated so the arcing flows across the surface of the cube.

Thanks for the info Greg ! I will check out Ulead Media Studio..

Does anyone know if it's possible to do something of the sort using PI ?

As no one has replied positively to your questions from a PI perspective my guess would be no.
The existing PI electrical arcs and sparks are rather poor.
All you need is 5 or 6 progessive photos of an electric arc and load these into PI. I would then duplicate these add some blur and use this for the coloured glow.
You can generate the arc pictures in Media studio pro.

Cheers
