Shake is a minimalistic set of high end tools that make a very flexible base to work from but it's not like for example Combustion that has a load of bundled effects like smoke, fire etc.However, bundled effects can look quite fake (2-dimensional) so you'd probably be better getting into the way of doing camera tracking using say Icarus (it's been renamed):http://www.peerlessproductions.com/t...es/Icarus.htmlthen import the camera data into a 3D program and model, animate and render the lightning effect with alpha. Then use Shake as the compositor. Sign In or Register to comment.
