Creating a spinning propeller in Flamingo


#1

Hi all,

Can someone suggest a good tutorial for creating a realistic spinning propeller? It would need to be a translucent disc with ‘blurs’ to represent the blades.

Any help appreciated.

I handle it in three steps. Render the plane and prop. Then render the blur prop. Then photoshop both images.

That is exactly what I am looking for! How do you render the blur?

Thanks for your help.

I render the photoshop blurred prop separately from the model. It takes a bit of work to locate/position the surface the blur is on to the model.
