Does anybody have a good formula to make a soap bubble effect? I am using the 3D Invigorator (not Pro).
Client wants the product label to be reflected in bubbles. (Product = soap).
I am muddling through this and thought I should ask around. None of my attempts have been 100% satisfying. One thing I am wondering is if there is a way to get a "Wet Look".
By the way the PDF manual says that to make a Sphere, use a small dot with the Edge Profile called Semicircle. However, as far as I can tell, there is no Semicircle edge profile. I'm using the Half Pipe edge profile.
Halfpipe is correct. To make the bubble look real you'll want to use a reflection map which includes your product.. you'll probably want to add some fake reflective elements.. You'll also want to play with the highlight settings.
I ended up doing this with a different plug-in (particle generator set on low production). In Invigorator I wasn't able to easily strike the right balance between transparency, reflectiveness, and readability. I realized that the true 3D aspect to the Invigorator was not crucial to my project. I am generating particles with a custom particle instead.
I love the 3D Invigorator, it's totally awesome. But I don't get a chance to use it that often, so when I need to use it, it's too deep and I struggle with it.
I think I will sit down and do some wood-shedding with the Invigorator, in the future.
