Energy Lightning Blend


(SKPjason) #1

A few people had asked about creating lightning and energy-type discharges… I’m posting a blend file I use fairly frequently which gives a nice example of dancing energy…

Cool stuff, liked it!

Much simpler than mine… I’m preparing a tut anyway!

Edited:

‘Slow’ is much better, lightning strokes are fractal but with a distinct direction, the ‘Massive’ one presents unrealistic ‘rings’

That would be extremely grateful, I have been trying to figure out how to do lightning for ages!

S68: Your comment about the “massive” one producing unrealistic “rings”… I know… If you place this material on a sphere mesh (with some plantary texture) it looks like a great force field effect… or if the colors are changed to orangish red… it looks like the planet is burning up…
