Particular Streaks wrapping round a moving car
on Dec 6, 2012 at 10:18:54 am

Hi All,

I'm looking at having 5 streaks wrap over a car, like in a wind tunnel, but the car is facing the camera and moving.

So the camera is shooting out the back of a Landrover as the car follows. I have tracked the scene and created the 5 streaks, using Particular, which appear screen bottom and head back into Z-space. Is it possible to add some sort of deformer to make it appear as if the streaks are moving over the car - across the bonnet, over the windscreen, across the roof and down the back windscreen, then they continue up the road?

Any help or pointers to tutorials will be gratefully received!

Thanks, Shaun.

Many thanks
Shaun Harrison

Hey Shaun,

I think the best thing you could do is to use motion paths. Animate a light for each streak in the path you want the particles to flow. Rename each light "Motion Path 1" and so on. Then, under physics, turn on the motion path for that particular layer. You also need to move the particular emitter to the spot where the light starts. The particles should now flow along the path the light took. Do this for each of the 5 streaks. I think this should allow you to achieve the look you want.

Best,

Mike

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your reply.

I had tried the Motion Path suggestion before, but maybe I did it slightly wrong.

I'll have a try again, using your directions.

Thanks again!

Many thanks
