A little effects test I've been cooking up the past few days.

The file size is a bit large for the length, but I wanted it to be high quality.

Hehe. Sweet.

Until I downloaded the clip, I thought I was watching "Blowing up a cat". Which startled me. But I was also strangely intrigued.

Nevermind.

Nice

A cat, eh?  I don't think  I'd use CG for that.  Practical all the way. :misch:

Not bad.  The composite of the car didn't quite work.  Using a real car, then getting a clean background plate would have worked better.   I also think the explosion should be "dirtier", with more black smoke.  Adding a little bit of camera shake would also help sell it.

The car didn't really seem to fit the background for some reason.  Like it was too small or something.

The fire seeme kind of fake and...2Dish to me.  Other than that it was pretty good. Cheesy

I used one image for everything in the shot.  I cut out the car from the background and clone stamped to fill in the hole.  I did end up shifting the car from its original place in the pic to avoid a tree that was also in the foreground.   It would have looked really weird to have the tree untouched.  About it being too small/large, I didn't change the relative size of the car and background at all.

Yeah, I don't like the fire at the end much either.  I'm working on adding some burning wreckage which should look better than random fire on the ground.

Hmm, I'll try the black smoke idea as well.  Would extra pieces of car flying/falling help any?

extra pieces and black smoke sound good.

car does look out of place.... just odd shot i guess.

and the fire does look really 2d... if nothing else, try layering it.

good work Smiley
