Hi all

I have been given a job to create a side shot of a glass pane being shattered by a baseball. I have tried to shoot this in slow-mo but its a bit blurry and I need a much higher frame rate than I can get (I tested on 200FPS). So I would like to try and accomplish this in 3DS Max, I would love some advice on how to approach this kind of shot. Specifically creating and then breaking the glass realistically.

That will make your like a lot easier doing broken glass. They even have a tutorial for it.

Sell the Talent you have to communicate effectively through graphics. Use the best tool suited to accomplish the Job.
