More rabbit ears hahaha… trying to find a nice procedural way to add film scratches, so may well add an update a bit later today, but for now, the stomach is making horrible noises.

how did you make that sparkle effect?

Basically a particle system with a Follow Path constraint set to it. The sparkle effect comes from a Glare node added in compositing. Make sure though that the sparkle emitter is positioned in the world-origin before you add the Follow Path constraint, otherwise your sparks will go all over the place and won’t follow the path properly. It took me a while to fix that glitch hahaha… Happy to make a YT video if you want to see the whole process. Still looking for some easy way to add those old fashioned super-8 film scratches. Found some videos, but most show blobs, not actual scratch lines. Will get get there one day though.

This will be somewhat more helpful I hope: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50WZCuSTYh0 :wink:
