Draw Lightning Generators

On Sale! by 3DSinghVFX in Modifier Setups



"This tool generates Lightning from curves and meshes with full artistic control."

There are two lightning generators:

  1. Lightning Generator: It generates 2D/3D lightning from a curve (it can have multiple splines).
  2. Surface Lightning Generator: It generates lightning on a mesh surface or objects. Lightning can be controlled with a curve (it can have multiple splines).

Features:

  • These tools generate realistic lightning.
  • Easy to control with a curve in 3D space or on a mesh surface.
  • With a curve, you can control direction, spread, branches, etc.
  • It also generates lightning for each spline of a curve.
  • Allows defining the core(s) of lightning.
  • Flow along the curve.
  • Lightning interacts with external objects, i.e., you can define Attract-Objects as well as Repel-Objects.

Documentation

Detailed documentation of settings is included with the files.

A video demo is also available on my YouTube channel: 3D Singh VFX
