These are best composited using a screen or additive blending mode. In some of our file formats, the particle shockwaves have the alpha channel built-in. speeding up your compositing workflow.

We provide these in 4 file formats:

  • Zipped PNG sequence
  • Zipped ProRes

Additionally, we’ve included some mind-blowing magic clash VFX assets. These are the explosive effects seen when two opposing forces collide in a dangerous wizarding duel.

This is the spectacular value of the magic effect bundle shine, as these can be blended on top of the magic beam effects to create an incredible composition. We’re especially proud of the liquid variety, which are an iconic visual from the Harry Potter movies.

To complete the pack, we’ve included an essential mix of magic flashes. These can be used when a wizard is casting a spell, or even deflecting one.

The quick yet detailed effects are perfectly designed to not look overdone, making it incredibly easy for them to blend into your action sequence.

Some of our effects work best when using auto-orient, which keeps layers pointed towards the camera when in 3D space. This can be accessed via Layer -> Transform -> Auto-Orient -> Towards Camera. When using this, combined with standard 3D beam layers, you can create the most incredible effects that are easy to customise and composite!

Over 30 New Magical Sound FX!

New Magical Sound FX are now available for download!

We have been needing fantasy/magical sound effects for so long, and we are happy to share the new collection with you.

Our content has depended heavily on the SciFi category for supernatural sound design, which work well for some content, but not everything. The new Magic Sound FX  rounds things off nicely. These have a more fantastical element to them.

 

Fantasy Gliss options are perfect for a memory transition, falling into a dream, or summoning your fairy godmother.

Fairy Dust selection is wonderful for any magical or supernatural particles, whether you’re flying through a nebula or are sprinkling a love potion into someone’s drink.

Whooshes and Spells are helpful when generating magic or powers, and can be used nicely in tandem with our SciFi collection
