I nee an opinion on muzzle flashes

Postby Grunt360360 on 02/25/2016, 1:44 pm

Okay so i have a really bad of OCD, I have a muzzle flash tutorial here but is the muzzle flash realistic (I obviously dont mean reality i mean compared to other VFX muzzle flashes) I just dont know any people who are interested in this kinda stuff so i just need a straightforward opinion on what needs to be improved, if anything.

It's not terrible, it all comes down to personal taste. Although it sure looks like those muzzle flashes he's promoting are just somebody who stole the Action Movie Essentials pack and is reselling them illegally.

I think it looks okay. My thoughts when compositing anything, including muzzle flashes, is:
1) Does the blur of it match the camera's focus in the footage?
2) Does the light from the muzzle flash interact with the actual footage (i.e. light up the actor's hands, face, nearby objects, etc)
3) Does the footage have a certain amount of grain/noise? If so, add noise to the flare as well to match.
