Hey guys :smiley:
My name is Rafał Ściblak and I am from Poland currently studying IT. Was lurking here and there on this forum checking stuff which you are posting. And so I decided to post my own first VFX reel.

The reel is made from vfx made for my school project, 32 particles in total. Some of them are really simple and some of them are a little bit more complex. Was aiming into something between stylized and realistic artstyle.

And if someone would want to I have uploaded my demo scene on Google Drive so you could play around with it in realtime.

Looking forward to your thoughts and criticism :slight_smile:

Tried to make some ground imapct vfx. UE4 this time.

I like the dust, although I wish it fell a little more naturally . Looks dope though! question about the crack in the ground. How’d you handle that?

It’s just a grayscale texture with alpha erosion applied.
Here’s the material for that.

Went with dynamic materials because material parameter collection wouldnt allow me to handle multiple swords cutout when they are coming out of portals at different locations.

Sword shake is hand animated with curves.

Wind and power up texture:
