For our movie we would like to do some cool VFX shots, and we want to do some DBZ as well. So for poweringup I would like something like Frodo in LotR when he enters the wraithsworld. In the appendices I saw it was done by shooting fire in high contrast, then using the PS called Sprites to get a sort of fire/wind effect. Iīve got AFTER FX and 3d MAX, does anyone know where I can get some plugins or something for this effect? Thank you.
Also, tips regarding other DBZ effects like energy beams would be greatly appreciated. iīm sure it could be done with keyframing but I donīt know how to, I havenīt really tried After FX that much so far, and rotoscoping it in Photoshop doesnīt seem a very natural way either...
