    Question Time Travel

    Hi Lightwave Legends
    Anyone have any tutorials or ideas on creating
    an LOTR Two towers time travel animation

    Similiar to Gandalf after his physical death
    on the snowy mount after slaying the firey beast Balrog.???

    This is kind of shot usually involves live plates and compositing as well as CG, so it would be a "big" tutorial. Try to break it down into sub scenes with each being it's own mini project, then put it all together in after effects or another compositing app. The one part (in Gandalf's eye) looks like a lot of space scenes, so maybe you could start by searching for space tutorials like nebulas, suns, and etc. Also there are a lot of compositing tutorials out on the web.

    Ok thanks fgreen

    Looks like they composited alot of clouds as well in those shots.

    Do you have any compositing sites in mind?

    Here are a couple for After Effects.

    You will rarely find an exact tutorial, but try to think of how to generalize. Like a tutorial on using AE's fractal noise for fire (on creative cows) could also be modified for... say... plasma energy or nebula effects.
