View Full Version : Fluid Freeze Effect

02 February 2008, 11:46 AM
Hey guys,

I'm gonna start my bachelor thesis and have to this some questions.

My Bachelor thesis will be a 3d trailer for the Taekwondo world championship in the discipline “Poomsae”(traditional forms/patterns).

The story

A human-shaped golden cup of the last Taekwondo world championship comes to life when the judge in the off-speech gives the korean start-commando “Sijak” (engl.: start) which is simultaneously the working title of the trailer.
The golden surface splinters and the Taekwondo fighter, the multiple titleholder, gets uncovered. He starts to perform the patterns called “Poomsae”.
Doing the last technique of the form he gets frozen to gold from feet to head.
Finally this pose builds the new logo for the world cup.

Ok, so the cup is at the same time the fighter. The fighter comes to life after hearing this commando. The cup surface splinters and the fighter gets revealed.

Now I want to collect some advices and suggestions before i start.

How can I realize this freezing effect?
The body of the fighter should be frozen to gold.
I thought about the Mortal Kombat SubZero fighter. He lets other fighter freeze with his iceball.

I saw this metaball Moonshine plugin:

I don't know, but perhaps it should work with fluids.
Starting from the feet the fluid should cover the whole body to the head and freeze.

What do you think? Is there any tutorial about this?
I need your help.
