Solar eruptions with electric shader...

Tiling anomaly at the bottom, sadly. Looking for a way around it.

Thanks peeps! The big ones turned out nice. Figured out a way to fix the seam at the bottom. I'll extend the polys in both directions, and give a 3rd mask to 'fuzz out' the seam.

Nice work. Did you use any special plugins or is this vanilla max?

Looks really nice :)
Did you model the flames shooting out or is this all the work of the blur shader you mentioned in your previous post?

reminds me of a portion of Deconstructing the Elements in 3ds Max
http://www.amazon.com/Deconstructing-Elements-3ds-Max-Plug-ins/dp/0240521269

Worth a look if you haven't already. One of the first books I got for 3ds. Nice work.

This is all zero plugins, and added only Blur Studios' 'Electric' shader. It's a pretty nice shader actually.
There are no individual models for flames. There's a single ring(for each size of eruption, small, medium, large) with the offsetting/animating electric shader, and that's it. Texture animation and perturbation settings were eventually found (along with phase settings) that arrived at a decent facsimile of solar eruptions.

Here's an updated render...
640x480 and the tiling anomalies are fixed...

Also, cool :)

How long did it take to render the latest clip? And a rough eyeballing of your rig specs?

About to post a close-up of the flare in 640x480.
I'd like to do a whole thing....show the star, dive down through it to the core, see it begin to collapse, zoom back out, show the nova and the blast wave destroying a few planets, etc. Would take a while.

Here it is. Still thinking about the whole shmear I mentioned above....we'll see.
