Mistika particle effects

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

With the holiday season coming up, I know you’ll all need some sparkle and glitter for those Christmas themed films. That’s why I decided to make a tutorial on this trick I came up with a couple of years ago. It involves animating the shape-input of a BrushStroke effect, and if you watch the whole thing you’ll also see it combined with Feedback effects.

PS: On our current workstations (xw8400 with Quadro FX 5500) the BrushStroke does not render in hardware mode, and I have to turn it of i mConfig -> Render options to use the effect. Please let SGO know if you have problems as well, as this bug has been around since Mistika 4.

UPDATE: According to Roman, the bug is now fixed for future releases.
