Anyone have special effect requests?...(no plugins)
show user profile  HANZZ
I'd like to try my hand at creating even more special effects than the ones I'd already figured out.

I got a decent looking fire, a fully dynamic aurora borealis, a faked volumetric effect for plasma/coronal mass ejection, solar flares, sun surface, faked volumetric effect for opaque smoke/mist, a true volume effect (with volume lights) for nebulae and maybe other uses: I'll test things like an animated dust wall approaching camera later on.

So if anyone has requests, I'm willing to give it a shot.

Have a further visual idea I can get? I loved interstellar. Do you refer to the part where he was moving through time to find his kid's room?

Thanks for the idea! It's odd you mention that plasma globe: I've been thinking about that very effect a few times about four weeks ago. I'll get to that one later on tonight. Getting randomized branches....that will be more difficult to achieve. I've found no quality lightning solution beyond the standard crap: splines with noise and glow, or some non-animated method that only renders a single image. I'll see what I can do, though.
