View Full Version : Engine´s Noise effect

04 April 2003, 08:46 AM
Ok, lately i´ve been thinking on how to create that soft&transparant engine noise effect. I thought of using semi tranparant particles like sparks but i dont think theyll do it.
U know? That effect often seen in Final Fantasy the Spirits withing, when an engine is workin the turbines make this kinda of cool tranparent noise in the air also used on gunshots.
I need to learn how to do this in compositing. Please helpe me.

Also if i want to make something in the ground move and make trails on the sand as it passes by what must i do? I´ve heard about a sand blaster plugin but i dunno if thaTS WHAT i should use to create such effect.

Programs i use


but most of all what i really want to learn is that engine noise compositing effect cause that quite adds lots of realism into the scene.

it seems someone wanted to do the same as i did, but in the end i dont understand how he manages to do it :(

You want to do it this way. Render the particles in a separate pass and use them to displace the background image in the compositor.

There was once a tut on on this very topic...using a couple of particle passes as displacement for your background plate.
