I am trying to make a friction burn effect as meteors enter the atmosphere but can’t quite figure out a way to make it look good close up. I have a good shot of the meteor from farther but I have to get really close up for one of the shots. I tried using particles or an animated texture but neither of them looked quite right. Any ideas?
This is kind of along the lines of what I am looking for:
Hello Mark, Not quite sure about what looks "good" or not but you may want to try messing with the color ramps and settings. I created a two part tutorial that's on You-Tube that may be some help. Here's a link to part 1,
part 2 explains more about adjusting the settings. You can find all my tutorials under deepfriedectoplasm on You-Tube. Hope this helps.
