Hey all, okay 2 topics here first one is lightening, wondering if anyone has any suggestion on how to go about making lightening strike to light up a room. Im wondering if it is as simple as wiring the light into a train transformer and just flickering the light really bright when it strikes, then in post production I can add the bolt? Any suggestions? 

second topic is a fireplace: how can I go about lighting a room with a fireplace and glow, is this something that also a transformer would be good for, so the light is not consistant? Has anyone used tissue paper or anything to replicate flames?

thanks!

In CS4 it is here:

Oh.. yes, it is there!  How could my seeing eye dog have missed that?  Bad dog!

Actually it's pretty cool too!

Glad you have it Nick! It's just one of those 'minor' differences that ends up being more useful than anticipated. 

I love liquify. I run Photoshop 6, (way behind the times). Do the CS versions let you zoom in better than the older versions did? That was my only gripe with not being able to use it more effectively.

Behind the times? HA! I only have Photoshop Elements 6 so, I'm in the same boat. But I don't have any trouble zooming in in the Liquify window. There are two ways to zoom in, the box at the bottom where you type in the magnification you want or there's the magnifying glass tool where you just select the area you want to zoom to.

Oops! Lost what I wrote and accidentally reposted your post by mistake.

Let me try again.

I mean PS 6, full version, (pre CS) from around 2003. I know I can zoom in it, but not in as tight as I'd like. I may be confusing it with KAI'S power goo, however, from around the same time, which I had bought before liquify was built into even earlier versions of PS. I really need to invest in a new version of PS, along with finally buying AFX, dragonframe, lightroom, and upgrade from vegas5. And a 64 bit windows 7 machine. But I'm gonna be patient until I get preproduction done. I digress...

Have you considered compositing a real fire into the shot with an on set glow done for real?

Or do you want to keep it all in stop motion?

Yeah, Roger Evans had a great example of that in his Jonny Quest film. The torches in the mummy scene, if I remember.

I'd been experimenting with the possibilities of slow motion and how to achieve that slick, ultra slow look in stop motion. And after a while of testing, I decided to make a short film to showcase the effect. It is a spoof of all those fancy perfume…Continue
