Hello !

I decided to go deeper in the lightning part, It was to confused and did not fit to the original concept, here is my result


#3

thats pretty gorgeous. IS the electricity a mesh?


#4

No, all is Billboard and ribbons here


#5

OH wowza! v cool my main man


#6

Hell yeah, the lightning feels a lot better now. I thought it was a stylistic choice at first, which I also liked a lot :stuck_out_tongue: . Epic work man!


#7

Inspiring work. Love it!
If this is a ribbon, does your shader have the scolling UV? Is the texture set to clamp?

I’m new at this, I’m trying to lean :slightly_smiling_face:


#8

You have some lovely colours here.


#9

Thanks! Glad you like it!
Yes, this is inside PopcornFX, there is some scrolling UVs, with the texture in repeat mode and a remap to dissipate :smiley:


#10

I feel like some of the electric sparks are too snappy. You might consider giving them a longer life where they blend to their complimentary color and dim for a bit longer. It could give you that retinal after image feel.


#11

@Orik this is amazing! could you explain the process of how the lightning is made? is it using a panning texture or is it manually animated using a flipbook?


#12

Looks like a UV distortion and scrolling ribbons to me.


#13

Hello @Iby , the process of the lightning is pretty simple and similar to the rest of the fx, It’s actually alslo using a panning texture. No flipbook at all here

Here is the texture
T_Ribbon_Lightnings
I just set some IDs inside the texture in order to create variations like so :
T_Ribbon_Lightnings_IDS

Hope it helps ! :grinning:


#14

Oh that’s sound a great idea, I need to try this out, thanks ! :smiley:

Hi Orik!
I am really really love this effect! I wonder how you can make it.
Can you share detail tutorial that you made this effect??? :drooling_face::drooling_face::drooling_face:


#16

@Orik this is amazing! The texture really explains a lot. I was also going to ask how the nice tiny sparks were made but it was part of the Texture. Its an amazing trick. Thanks so much for sharing this.


#17

Hey here is a small breakdown of the effect :slight_smile:
I made the animation slower to have a better overview and also increaded the particle count.

1rst step adding the little lightnings sparks:
LightSparks

2nd step adding the panning lightning :
Lightning

3rd step adding the main slash + a light :

Result with post processing :

Hi.
Do you know how to implement this effect in unity? I spend the whole day and I have no idea how to make in ? ^(

Sorry, I’m newbie in FX
