I’m not sure I understand what you mean. What is ‘good animated lightning’ ?


(jesterKing) #3

animated lightning?

as in thunder and storm and lightning?

That WOULD be a good script to do…

Look back here in a few days maybe ;)…

You can use the l-system script to make lightning meshes, but animation can be difficult (not impossible though- have to combine build effect and some linear IPO’s - :x )

Look for the script here: www.geocities.com/blenderdungeon
And the lightning tut at Stefano’s site: www.selleri.org/Blender
Sorry- I don’t have time to write a tut on animating the bolt. Mess with halo material’s alpha, the build effect, dupliverted light intensity, add and glow effects… :o
/me waits intently for ripsting’s script…
