View Full Version : Matrix and tournament style explosions LW 7.5

Hello all,

Does anyone know how to make "jellyfish" in lighwave and how to animate?

Any help greatly appreciated.

it's basically done using particles and hypervoxels. I've found the real limiting thing to be rendering it. Nice flow mo(i think thats what jellyfish means) explosions like that take alot of render power.

I believe it's more along the lines of the explosions and shockwaves in the "Matrix Revolutions", but the effect I am looking for looks more like the "photon beams" that the guns produce in "Real Taurnament."

Any body have an example of this in LW 7.5??

Thanks for taking the time.
