In this course, we take you through the process of setting up a complex - but visually stimulating - particle system that warps a character in through a teleportation device, as well as an amazing look at "phasing" the character in to view! We'll look at creating the holographic projections you see in the scene, adding texture and distortion to the sequence, and then wrap up the series with an in-depth look at setting up a basic render and animating the camera and lights so that you can make your very own cut-scenes and cinematics!
