View Full Version : Help with Comp

08 August 2006, 05:03 PM
I am working with a comp in which I have fire streamers(Maya Fluids) passing around a CG character. I want the fire streamers to light up the character in that particular area when they pass over. How do I do this? I have tried using interactive lighting in Maya but the results were less than spectacular.

Thanks, Steve

depends how realistic you were wanting it.

you could try animating a light source in maya that follows the path of the effect, this would create more realistic shadows and 3d (if the light went around and behind the main object)

If its to be done in fusion, i would animate a point light, and vary its size/intensity to mimic it going round the back of the object
