How to glowing firefly effect?

Post by ilovelessons » Fri Dec 30, 2016 4:10 am

Good day,

I am making an animation short film and I am trying to make like a magical firefly forest background and I am looking at recreating the effect in this video i found online -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-PCrcJ2f7A

Anyone knows how to recreate this is Moho 12? I tried using the Particle Effect > Sparkles option but that hardly looks like what's in the video above. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Moho particles' system can be very powerful when you animate the particle "by hand".
Try this one:

Thank you Víctor Paredes,

Yes that looks very good ! :D...

Also is there any place on the net where I can get more .moho files like that (that are free to use is projects). Or did you do that yourself?

Either way thanks a million

You are welcome!
I created that .moho file based on the video. Anyway, you can find files and tutorials here:

Jez Jones has been collecting and creating lots of material on that site. I really recommend everyone to check it.
