Listen up... :)
I have shot live-action footage of an actor (acting an ancient warrior). He is going to kick some guys ass with a magical Axe. He acted with a reference object for the magical Axe.
Now when he says a magical spell the weapon should come in his hand, on a magical way.
Does somebody has some suggestions how I can make it magical enough.. maybe with some glowing sparks. Or some green fire? I need some starting point so I can go ahead. I work with Maya, Digital Fusion, After Effects...
