Star Trek Transporter effect


(leojS) #1

Another star trek style question! Does anyone know a way of creating a similar effect to Star Trek for teleporting in Blender? I tried particles, but I can’t seem to get a realistic looking effect. Please help! :smiley:

There is a star trek blender site a ran accross somewhere that described how to do this. My first thought is particles or maybe animated alpha textures or something to that effect.

In this article there are some MOV files containing sparkles.

You’ll also want to learn how to use Blender’s Sequence Editor to do transporter effects.

WierdHat’s compositing tutorial

There was a really good post about how to composite stuff (rendered at different times) into a final scene, but it’s fairly old and I can’t find it now…

Hope this helps.
