also, 'Nemo' a way to get blood to splatter with this effect:

-make a layer that looks like blood (use a blood texture, fractal noise, the colour 'red', etc

-apply the CC Mr. Mercury effect to the layer.

-Follow, Kramer's tutorial, but Up the velocity and birth rate so it 'splats' on in a split second!
Michael Wentworth-Bell
03/03/2010
As alexa pointed out, rain drops refract light, so the 'image' inside the rain drop should be flipped, showing the sky on the bottom, and the ground on the top.

A simple way to do this using CC Mr. Mercury is put a '-' sign in front of your gravity parameter, and then flip the layer the effect is on on the vertical axis.

There is probably an easier way to do this though :P

I realy enjoy the tutorial.It is quiet simple and cool, but i think there's a little thing missing.I thing u should add a little of ur magic to it( deform some drops as they slop down ). U r definitly the LORD OF AFTER EFFECT.

Hello,

i don`t know if this is the proper place to post this. It is possible to make some kind of t1000 terminator using CC mercury? also can it is possible to use the "speed particles tutorial" to make some kind of teleport effect like in "jumper" movie or smokelike teleport like Nightcrawlwer in Xmen movie?
Thank you verry much

"hi andrew really great tutorial.i still curious your computer system can u say ur system coz my computer so heavey for after effects so many time i asked to you pls giveme answer this time i will buy new computer i wait answer keep your good job"

I think you should have at least 4gb of ram a good dual procesor or tow and at least a Tb of hardisk space and a 64bit operating system.

I use 4 gb ram and an Intel core 2 duo tha thing is i have xp 32 bits and it only reads 3.2gb olso i have 1TB of internal hard drive and an external 1TB for hd footage back up. u should use xp 64bit
its been a year or so since i bought it so im shure u can get this config way more cheap now or a betta one.
by the way i got it from B&H and included Premiere Pro 2 back then with matrox video card and an ATI But ithink nividia its betta isnt it?

Hi Andrew I haven't heard the clip with audio yet so I don't know if you talk about it, but the waterdrubs do show the 'background' upside down, so it's a bit wrong the way you show it. Don't know if there's a easy way to fix it.

Best, Jesper

hey nice i was wondering when you use an adjustment layer s there anyway to stop it affecting a layer beneath it?
as in want to do this but my subject and background are seperate layers so in order for the droplets to look correct have to use an adjustment layer to affect both of them bu then this leaves me with the problem of not being able to add a background with out it being turned into part of the mr mercury, please help

The real drops in fact refract the light. So the groung must be at the top, and the clouds at the bottom.

Looks good... I was just thinking that it would look better if the rain drops splattered on the lens and made a more irregular form... cause they look too perfect, making them look fake...

Nice, I had forgotten about Mr Mercury! Great use for that effect.

I was really hoping to see some use of caustics in this one but I will keep adding that to my prayers each night. Thanks Andrew!

PS - I think I saw Sam hitching on Rt.66 last night.

02/02/2008
Thanks Andrew - and much like Jack commented I too was thinking of using this for a blood-splatter effect. Here's a test clip of it on my site (note that the footage will be very different, this is just a proof of concept to myself):

http://slaptheface.com/blog/?p=242

Also, Jack, if you've come up with anything I'd be interested in seeing how you've done it and what you came up with, or if anyone has any ideas on how to improve it I'd love to hear them as well.

One thing that I thought I'd mention is that when you look through a rain drop on glass, the image past it is flipped upside down rather than being right side up. So it would probably work better to duplicate the layer and flip it vertically and add the effect so that the image is refracted to being upside down through the water.
