How do you create the water effects(like pouring tea) and fire effects? I know you can make them out of wrappers or tin foil, but how?

Do you want to use special effects?

potatoes63 Posted: Feb 21st 2009

you can use cling wrap as water being poored. and for fire you can add it in with CGI or you can take tin foil and shine a laser pointer on it. hope dat helps.... oh ya and you can use clear gel/petroleum jelly as water also.;)

Does anyone know any Special effects programs?

pinnacle studio 11 is brilliant. it does fire,greenscreen,water ripples,and it's great for animations and live-action films. it's like windows movie maker but better.

is it free?

Purple&Brown Posted: Apr 21st 2009

I have pinnacle 9

crackingtoast Posted: Apr 21st 2009

pinnacle 9 is okay but pinnacle 11 does have alot more special effects like water,fire,smoke etc which makes it worth the price. if you know how to use pinnacle 9 well that's an extra so you wouldn't find everything hard if you get it.
