Blizzard imitation effect help needed

Recommended Posts

I am trying to imitate the pyro effect made by Mannoraoth in this Blizzard cinematic. I am getting nowhere figuring this out by myself. I got the color scheme down in the shader but past that, i do not know where to go. I am not sure if i should use a pyro fx shelf tab flames, explosion or fireball. If you know of a better way, please tell me. i am willing to learn and listen to the communities knowledge base. I am going to use it for a game i am working on. Please help.

 

timecode: 2:15-2:21

PS: I am working in Houdini 15

So it's about the energy beam thingie, right? Not his head on fire?

 

Because the energy thingy isn't something you'd set up with a Pyro sim, though you could of course use Pyro in/on top of such an effect, but in it's foundation it a SOP or particle effect, depending on how you prefer to set this kinda stuff up - I would personally start in SOPs, then add particles (and perhaps pyro) on top of it.

i've never attempted an undertaking like this before. can you offer some insight into how you would accomplish this. I created a dop network with a sop solver connected to the output node. Ive never created effects from scratch. Can you give me some help on what i will need or point me to a tutorial that can assist me in my undertaking.
