MrBrouchet: Sketch #16

Hey folks, I’m starting this sketch a bit late but I was pretty inspired lately so I decided to join in. This is my first contribution to the community, so I’m definitely excited !
I’m working on this kinda ‘organic’ shield effect, let me know what you guys think:

This is made with PopcornFX v2. I’ll be posting more breakdowns of the graphs later on. Here’s a quick view of the main layer (the moving shield part):


Here’s a quick video in-editor, I’m working on a position-aware reaction of the shield, like if the effect tried to harden itself when a threat is nearby:

For now this is working with a simple float3 vector attribute, I’m hoping to convert this to a shape later on to have a better control and visibility over the “threat position”.
