Just uploaded this new tutorial on creating the transport effect from the new Star Trek movie using particleIllusion 3:

There are complete project files there too. Cool stuff.

Let me know what you think.

What do I think?!?

OUTSTANDING!

I'd have had the "Spinners" slightly more parallel and spaced out more and their numbers increase over time.

But the way you did the PsP edit/erase/remove from some of the tails so that they would "appear" to go around AND then how you "tailored" this fabric to the body parts. WOW!

I kept up with most of it, and I am always grateful when a real technician spends the time to impart theior knowledge this way. Yes I know you have a vested interest in Pi, but even still . . .

Great stuff. Thanks ..

Grazie

Hi,
I am constantly amazed by how easy Particle Illusion is to use and at the same time how incredibly deep the program is. This is another example of that. It is such a fun program-Not many are.

Alan,

I agree with the previous postees - excellent tutorial and shows some of the depths of the program.

Have to say I actually hate effect in the film (though love the film!) and prefer the ones in the various series more, but this was an eye-opener. Thanks again.

I was really impressed with this one. When I saw the movie, I assumed that they used a 3D effect, and it never even occurred to me that it could be done in PI.

Major kudos and a high-five to you, sir. :)

Just to be clear, I'm sure it was done with 3D in the movie -- I'm just using pIllusion to recreate the effect.

Oh yeah, I understood that... I was sure it was a 3D effect in the movie. I was expressing my admiration for how well PI was able to replicate a complex effect so well. :)
