Thread: need a little speical effect help

    Default need a little speical effect help

    i have some footage that i want to add realistic lightning coming out of person. what is the easiest way to do this?

    (realistic meaning better the cheesy lines i can add in photoshop that look pathetic)

    I have Adobe Primere and Adobe After Effects. A friend of mine uses lightwave for all his effects but i dont want to have to learn a 3D rendering program if i dont have to.

    thoughts , suggestions? thanks guys.

    Under the render effect in AE there is a lightning option.

    you could also gooogle a guy called Ryan Wieber. check his site it has some good tutorials, I think one may be about using this very effect.
