FX THAT WE WILL REVERSE ENGINEER

OBSCURUS FX

This masterful magical effect is all about control. We will learn to manipulate particles, volumes and geometry with completely custom VEX code that can help you achieve any look.

BUBBLE BOMB

In this effect I will show you how to break down a complex, layered effect into simple setups and how to maintain that all important sense of scale and explosive timing this epic shot requires.

DISINTEGRATION FX

One of the most common magical FX but difficult to get right. Together we’ll unpack how to spread decay maps naturally and how to use this to drive an eye-catching disintegration FX that feels weighty and believable.
