View Full Version : Glass morphing

01 January 2009, 01:01 PM
hi everybody,
i'm looking for some help... obviously
my problem is that i have to create from a 3d glass a second one. With a morph? maybe? some mercury effect? Everything will be composited on live action footage. Ther's some plug in (after effect or 3dmax or LW) can do this?
thanx to all

I've done a similar effect by doing this :

1) add a symmetry modifier and animatating the mirror axis so that it clones out a second object.

2) add a volume select modifier and select the middle verts with a soft selection

3) add a relax modifier on top so that it smooths everything out.

I believe it's a similar technique to what they used for the Scion car commercials a while back where the cars morphed out of each other. That might get you close to what you need.
