Native AECC 'reverse explosion' effect?
on Jul 8, 2013 at 6:45:27 am

What's a likely approach to use with native tools to create a reverse sparkle explosion (implosion, I guess) in AECC?

Doesn't have to look like much of anything, just twinkly, streamery white sparks.

Thanks.

How about just running the rendered animation backwards?

It certainly may come to that as a practical matter, but that would chain me to whatever I rendered out as an explosion, multiplying files. I'd prefer something all in one project.

And, after all, it 'should' be possible, with all this technology. >;^)

I guess it all depends on which way you want the motion blur streaks to point: outward, as in an explosion, or inward, as in an implosion.

Inward, in this case.

I faked it w/a bitmap and scaling w/mucho motion blur. I guess I coulda made the bitmap using Shape Layers, but I hadn't even HEARD of Shape Layers until 3 weeks ago.
