Electromagnetic Effect


Hi Guys,
I’m on an important mission here to come up with a true to life effect representing Electronic magnet fields.

Which 50% electric and 50% Magnet.


Here is an example of something done in maya using expressions. I would like the same continuous but with a more sophisticated look.

As seen in the picture I am trying to build an versatile emitter that can be angled in any direction in 3D space on my footage… I have thought of a few ways this can be done but am so rusty in VFX of late and would like to see if anyone has any bright ideas on how best to do this-

  1. 3D objects flowing a long a path continuously
  2. 2D Video plans with Shapemask flowing along a curve continuously

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
