Particular 'Dust' Explosion
on Jul 12, 2007 at 7:54:24 am

Hi,

I've been grappling with this, but can't get it to look 'good'!

I have a blank screen then, a word, 'summer', slams in from off camera.

When it hits the blank screen, I want there to be a movement of dust, so it looks like the word hit hard, and hit a surface.

Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?

Thank you.

I fiddled around a bit and came up with this:

Adding some sound FX will probably really make it work.

There are two ways you can use particular to achive the effect you want, both will look uniquely different, one is alot harder on rendering.

FIRST you can make some essential dust custom particals, keep the opacity low, spawn a few with a short life so just a bit of dust gets thrown when it lands

SECOND, you create a grid of close 1 pixle wide particles, then evolve the Turbulence scale and strength to create a smoke like effect as it disperses. Im afraid i cant give you a step by step, only the essential concepts.
