Snoweffect???

Postby Nikl12 on 03/5/2009, 1:12 pm

Is it possible to make an effect in which there is a 3d text and this text will blown out by a little snowstorm??
I thought about this effect a very long time but i did not find any solution!! :(

If anyone has an idea how i can do that please write me!!
I also can write someone my e-mail adress for sending me an after effect project (I have After Effects Pro CS3)

Thank`s for your answers! :D

Welcome to the forum. Do you mean you want the text to be barely visible like the snow's in the way?

Not really, I still don't fully understand your question. Do you want the text to be blown away by the snow?

Here's a tutorial from CreativeCow.net. It should help you a little. :)

Also, is you have the Trapcode Particular plug-in there is a video on their site. They even have the project file for download.

I'll look into this later. I was just quoting from an earlier topic so I haven't been to the site in a while.
