Hi guys! I am working on a project that needs a spirit moving through a scene, it needs to be like flowing smoke with a glowing light effect so that if reflects on objects in the scene. I cant work out how to emit light from the smoke and move with the animation, i have been playing with both volume lights and geometry lights but i cant get either to move with the animation, they both stay at where the animation is on frame 1. I have tried selecting the volume and creating a volume light from that, and also using the original animated geometry before it was turned into a volume and making a geometry light from that, but neither use the animation. Can anyone suggest what i am missing or doing wrong? Or way to get the smoke to emit light and use the animation to move? I have attached a r&d scene file and a play-blast of my problem as it stands at the moment, any help would be really appreciated! smokeLight_001.hipnc smokeLight.mp4 smokeLight_001.hipnc
Hey all. I have an explosion and a volume light. You can see the effect of the volume light on the ground plane. My explosion is being composited and I need this light being created by the explosion to brighten up the ground so that it looks like the second image. What pass do I need to save this light information so I can use it in compositing? Basically, I want a pass of how the volume light affects the ground. Thanks in advance!
