What are you using for lighting/post effects? What’s your preferred bloom?

I still wonder how you created the recent fire effect on twitter @SrRubfish, did you pan the projectiles over meshes or did you use Trails and animated those?

Would be awesome if you can show us how it was made :slight_smile:

This one :smiley:

Not a lot, just a 0.2/0.3 of intensity with default settings. I like shiny stuffs but i prefer to control it with custom glows ^^ Only AA and a bit o color correction just to avoid the absolute black, but i could work without them (I work for mobile so…)

Continuing the discussion from Rubfish/Rafles VFX stuff:

Some people asked me for a complete breakdown so here it is c:

The trail is this texture, with a bit of noise to make it looks less static.

The flames towards the sphere are that, just offset it C:

Just adjust the position/rotation of the meshes and the direction of the trails until they match c:

The impact is made with a cilinder with modifications in the UV and a flames texture panning (B channel used to dissolve, controlling the dissolve using a custom data in the particle system and the vertexcolor.alpha). I also animate the scale and the speed to make it feel more… Fluid

Some sparks, flames, details and a lot of polishing in the timing.
I made this textures for the flames, a directional shape with a controlled handpainted dissolve in the blue channel.


With a control in the dissolve and animating the scale and the color c:

The last part is just a few meshes spawning towards a point with a paning shape and some noise (similar to the original charge) and a glow with a few flames to make it feels less static.

And that’s all c:

Wow. Amazing stuff! How you did smoke in Mega Shot?

It’s a handrawing shape with a controlled dissolve and a distortion of the texture and the dissolve modified over lifetime, with some panning and control on the size of the meshes.

It’s weird because I dont work with green tones, maybe it’s hard for me and i’m just avoid them. I’ve decided to force me a bit to create a “healing area” with some nature inspiration. (Got the idea with the Neeko’s Q).
I don’t feel like it’s a good job but was interesting and trying to improve my “weak parts”. What do you think? Any feedback?

Cool! I think the last reaction will be more natural if you feel buoyancy after being influenced by the direction of the force. Your work is really beautiful.
