Electric Trail Effect

Recommended Posts

hey guys,


   i am trying to create an effect similar to the image which i have attached . its kinda electric trail but looks like fluid(smoke), can anyone suggest how to proceed with this?


As of now iam creating a line and assigning some jitters to the point to create wacky shapes but still nowhere close to this.

I guess the fluid feel here comes from the thickness and the blur of the lightning effect. It is not razor sharp as basic rendering would create.

So I would try two things:

- try to just a little bit smooth out your lightning

- play with blur, Glow, timeshift in Compositing - I am pretty sure compositing makes this.
