Umm , I have seen that in charmed everything is so real.
The fireball ,the energy ball, the orbing, the blow up ,
the exact sound each power must have.
It's like you are watching it in reality , they probably
have a very powerful 3D Program ? or they have
programmers that melts in front of their monitors ?? :P
It's just unbelievable how live the things are...
Can we achieve such an output with the 4.0 engine ?

I can give you some info on what they do on the show:-

Firballs are mainly stock footage and they have mixed other elements, such as 3D to get the look they want.

Explosions/Smoke etc are just mainly stock footage, again sometimes they use 3D created elements

Orbing the particles are created within 3DS MAX & then a glow is added within After Effects

The reason that the shows FX probably look real, is because they are using real life stuff as much as they can, this will probably be the same for any TV/FILM

The programs they mailny use are - 3DS MAX, After Effects & Inferno.

I got a magazine and it had an article on Charmed and they went into all kinds of detail of the programs they use & how they create the FX, that is how I know this.

I just wanted to share that with you.
