Searchlight with Beam...


Thanks to the help of Tom, i was able to add a beam of light coming from the searchlight today. I'm currently working on filling the scene with some of Jolanta's city models and then i'll do a test batch render to see what the animation of the searchlight will look like, although, teh shot is only about a second long so it shouldn't take too long to render.

  1. Very nice! How did you create the light beam Ethan? I could use something similar later on...

  2. it was tom who actually did the beam, but basically he took a cylinder and added a glow, with fractal to make it look foggy and then you hide the source so the object doesn't show in the render...

  4. Aha, I had a feeling it was down to show clever texturing. Nice job
