I’ve been using blender for about a year now and lurking about the forum nearly as long because of it. Usually I can find whatever I’m looking for with relative ease, but I just can’t seem to find a decent tutorial for creating an energy shield effect. I’m hoping that someone out there can either give me a link to a tutorial, or be kind enough to walk me though the procedure.
I was able to do this back when I still had access to 3ds max in school, but I don’t anymore, so a Blender alternative would be awesome.
I’d prefer to have all the niceties Max had, multiple strike points at once, a gradual fading of the strike point, and for each point to be generated automatically only when specific objects collide with it. If Blender isn’t able to do all of that, the generating a strike point automatically is the only one I really care about.
