Real time effects
on 03-26-2012 08:10 AM
I really hope this issue wasn't talked in detail on another thread, because i looked allover the place and this is my last resort.
It's just me, or there is a huge lack of tutorials or learning resources about low poly effects like explosions, fire, lasers, spells, whatever ?!?
I'm looking mainly for tutorials on how to make something similar to 3D special effects like the ones used in Warcraft 3, DOTA, LOL, etc. I have a hard time finding something that looks great and it's still clean enough so it will help me with low poly games for mobile platforms.
Please guys, point me in the right direction, because of the generic words in what i'm looking for, i find all sorts of things related to AfterEffects, rendered explosions, and whatnot, but nothing really relevant to my problem.
I know my way around 3D apps, but i could really use some professional opinions because real time visual effects are new to me.
