I have footage of thick white pipes attached to a wall, the camera follows the pipes downwards for the shot.
im looking to use trapcode particular to create an organic substance flowing through the pipes, however these pipes are not see through. so i dot believe i can make it look great. anyway this is what i have been asked to do.
The effect is supposed to be hundreds of 'flecks' of florescent Scarab beetle/oil on water coloured particles that travel down the pipes, spinning and twirling as they go.
How would you use trapcode to create an effect like this? would i have to use custom sprites? if so i have 3d software i can use
I tried taking an image of a scarab beetle and creating 50*50 custom particles from them but in trapcode they were so small they looked like squares and were really bad.
thanks for any assistance, i know its a bit odd but yeah. anyway any help appreciated
