JangaFX blood tutorial


#1

Sorry to be a bother again it seems to be all I do ask for help hahaha!

i’ve been following the blood tutorial here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3pVQrElBcE&t=1868s from JangaFX - but his blood in his material shows up white and mine black, this means when its plugged into a particle it isn’t showing up at all, have i done something wrong?


#2

Connect the Output from the Add which is going into the “Base Color Input” also into the “Emissive Color Input”?!


#3

awesome thank you it worked! although it still doesn’t appear on my particle weirdly and the shaders have compiled… i’ve tried both two sided turned on and off


#4

What is the Value of the Erosion Parameter in your Dynamic Parameter Node?


#5

The video set it to 0 so mine is 0 too!


#6

And do you have a Dynamic Parameter Stack in your Particle System?


#7

Not yet, it’s just a basic set up of a particle, the tutorial didn’t mention anything to do with this, all he did was change the material


#8

Ok. I just tried to rebuild it and in my case I had to create a Dynamic Parameter Stack in your Particle System (right click in the Emitter and Parameter > Dynamic), refresh it and set the Erosion Value from the Material to 0 (or animate it over time from 0 to 1 to make it erode).

Edit: He is doing it in the tutorial around min 37.

Perfect I will give this ago in 1 hour when I can get back on it! I stopped my tutorial at 36mins because I couldn’t replicate my material actually being visible so thought I had done something wrong, thank you for taking the time to help me so far!! really appreciated!

thankyou, my first time using a drawing tablet! got it to work on vfx stuff seen as i’m delving into it more and really enjoyed making it! :smiley: will let you know my outcome as soon as I can :smiley:


#12

I did it! thank you for your help, it seems that the dynamic thing was the big issue for me, I should have waited a little longer and I would have found that out, my bad!! very happy with this now! again thank you so much for taking the time to help! honestly appreiacte it!
