View Full Version : Live action and dispersion

08 August 2006, 11:17 AM
Hey everyone, I'd like to create an effect in which a person i've filmed disperses into dust. The dust has to be the same color as the main character to make the transition look smooth.

What would be the best aproach? Should I try to map the footage to the particles or should I create different particlegroups with different colours that match the footage.

I'm inspired by the following effect i've seen in a showreel by hectic electric. (
If you click the showreel button and look for the desert around 1:14 you'll see people disperse. This is kinda the effect i'm after. If anyone knows how to do this it would be great!

Any hints or tips are appreciated, thnx in advance
