RC Plane Explosion


Hey RTVFX,

I have been told in my long road to becoming a professional VFX artist to find cool effects in the latest games and copy them. With the release of Modern Warfare earlier this year, I am going to be taking a swing at copying a few effects.

I actually had a bit of an issue with making the spark trails for the embers.

The embers emit from the points where the embers would be without the orbit, and neither the Emitter Location nor Ribbon approaches got it to work properly.
