does anyone know how to do a shattering effect on text. i need to have the letters explode out of the screen.

It can be done with fusions native toolset, but it's a lot of work with masking, and transform and DVE tools. Go find an AfterEffects plugin to do it, and save yourself some headaches. :beer:

hello jason,

end up doing the lettering scene in lightwave, simple, fast and with more control plus added some cool effects as well.

completely done well under half an hour. drag the video back into dfx for some nifty dve effects and was done in no time.

is there a way to merge two or three different dfx scene/flows together?

Hey Paul,

you could just open all your flows and copy and paste your nodes.

thanks alphatron,

that's one way to do it.

tried it now and it works. just got to play with the timeline to adjust the flows. a merge button would have been better but it works. so be it.
