Tell me what you think...
on Jun 16, 2006 at 4:43:42 am

These are a few simple little clips I made following Elvis's wonderful tutorials. I've just gotten PI this past week so if there's anything you can offer as advice, it's much appreciated...

It's in XVID codec...also I wouldn't try to enter Full Screen, not very good quality since my stage was 320x240.

-Similar to the Charmed "orb" and demon fire/electric ball.

-Star Trek transporting and eventual destruction of my room :) Pardon my appearence, it was a bit late.

Good work there, in the first video i'm quite disturbed by what appears to be sitting on top of your speaker in the background :S


All the same, looks good impressive

Nice stuff for only a week! Something you might want to try is adding lighting effects to give the impression that the particles are in the physical space with you. By that I mean adding another emitter that has the Intense option checked, giving it a similar colour to the orb, and letting it brighten up the background video, especially on areas closer to the orb. So the side of your face, your arm, the wall, etc. There are some emitters in the May 2001 library that can be used for this.

You can also use a single fuzzy round particle (use the single particle option) made big to give a glow effect.

If it were me, I'm always a fan of turning off the "preserve colors" option for intense particles. Being able to see through them and having them also effect the background makes it feel like it;s part of the shot.

Of course there are times you really want that Preserve colors option turned on...
