temporary and will be deleted within a day or two.
This was just fooling around and I have gotten the go ahead by the band to start so here is the prototype:

WOW Dude that is freekin' awesome!

Hey you're branching out! The music kind of reminds me of what Chicago would have sounded like if they had been a metal band. It almost sounds like they are playing "25 or 6 to 4".
kwhitaker
Yeah! That was refreshing, nice speaker action
DJBREIT
I liked the video.. cool.gif

But something got me thinking if you can find something to control the action of the speakers so the speakers sync with the music. It would look much better. Also if you find a way you can control other elements of the video.

Just a thought. smile.gif
TheSpleen
Thanks everyone!
The idea I have is.....as the video continues I will add more and more speakers and piles of instruments into a sort of mountain,
and under constant attack from f16's, apaches, hummers, Tanks...etc.
so anyone with some cool explosion effects or the like I be glad to listen smile.gif

DJBRETT,
good observation. I actually have them rigged to do just that. Explosions timed in as well.
This was a quick test rendering to see how it basically looked.
I just started today on polishing it and making some proper renders,

the one that came with AM is great
just wanting a different look
johnl3d
okay so get some sprites or sprite that you like load AM's explosion material and substitute the new sprites for the ones in the material and or adjust sizes color

quick example

for some odd reason that original AM explosion material is crashing my program after about 8 frames.
It's a war video......explosions are required.

I am not familiar with "original AM explosion material" - but if it is a particle system - perhaps you have too high an emission rate and/or life expectancy set? Try turning it way down to experiment to see if that helps, then ramp it back up until it crashes again.

OOOooohhhhhhHHHHH that might fit in nicely somewhere!
Ya got the material or sprites?

Nancy you solved my problem once again. Thank you!

The star explosion project in AM is a very useful effect
I am going to try to have it spew out of the center of the regular explosion if my puter can handle it.

Love the "army man" Thoms, Gene!

Anxiously awaiting this one, as always, Gene!

Thom never complains about being sent into harm's way ...that may be because he doesn't have a mouth. :-)

It's not easy being green. Blow that puppy up! In an environmentally friendly way, of course.
