I didn't have anything made for the holidays, so have this instead. ^^  Merry Belated Christmas!

This is WIP stuff for a video that should be about 4 minutes long or so, though this is definitely one of the cooler parts.  Don't expect to see the final of this one for quite some time (as in, next spring "maybe"). Will be finished around August (Bronycon feature).  This was rendered for a particle test and turned out quite pretty.  Still a few changes I want to make to it, though.  If you want to see more, you will have to show up to one of the Friday livestreams. ;)

Video Done! [Watch here!]
This is an earlier version of what is in the video.  As such, the lighting is more basic and camera less dynamic.

Most the particle effects are modified particles from other Source titles (primarily DOTA2).  A couple are custom.

What did you use to make that particle system? I need something like that for something I'm working on.
argodaemon's avatar
It isn't a single system. I took many different existing particle effects, mostly from DOTA2, and modified them a bit to work in the shot.
AquamarinePeridot's avatar
Oh. Might need practice on that, because I've never used the particle editor for anything besides making sure the particles are visible and deciding which particle system is best for certain scenes.

As long as you don't take credit as your own, I don't care if you do or don't. :)

KendallMLP's avatar
Your welcome, No usually people use models for the frames. But some people do draw for it.
Or you add the magic effects after you draw the figure?
