100 New Super-Powered Lightning Effects

Download 4K Lightning VFX Assets here.

This is one of our largest releases ever.

Over 100 4K New super-power lightning effects are available for you to download. This massive pack offers variations for aerial strikes, ground hits, lightning with or without sparks and tons more.

We categorise these into four main groups, those being ground, wall, aerial and basic. For the ground and wall assets, the illumination on the surfaces has been built-in, meaning you don’t need to spend a single second working on realistic environment lighting.

Thor Lightning VFX

With inspiration taken from Thor in Infinity War and Endgame, as well as the Flash, these effects maintain the epic plasma-arcing motion that defines the superhero look.

The VFX Artists at ProductionCrate tested this pack and are thoroughly amazed at how easy it is to use. By simply dragging on any effects you’ll see how well they integrate into your scenes with minimal effort.

Blending modes such as Add, Screen or Lighten will add that extra level of realism to your shots. Applying these lightning VFX assets onto this composition was incredibly easy, while also making it look undeniably epic!

You can add extra detail to these 4K assets by adding a simple displacement effect, which will give your lightning a far more jagged and powerful look.

With over 100 variations to choose from, you can combine, rotate, scale and adjust these in infinite ways for full control over your scene. In other words, these 4K electric effects will never fail you.

To test the true power of these assets, we took our favourite Hulk scenes from the Avengers movie and gave him the mighty powers of Thor. Take a look at what happened:

Creating Earthbender VFX

Recently we’ve had a dig at creating one of our most epic shots in ProductionCrate history – Earthbending!

We utilised the full range of FootageCrate content to help us achieve this destruction VFX. After building out the scene in 3ds Max, smoke bursts, shockwaves and debris elements from FootageCrate (which you can download here) brought the compositing to the next level.

Our powerful Camera Shake Script also gave us control over realistically jolting the camera to fully immerse our viewers into this clip.

The crashing elements from SoundsCrate can also help build the action.

We used 3ds Max and After Effects as our choice of software, though anyone wishing to follow along will be able to use almost any program that has the same features!

Head over to our recent Davesplanation video to check out how we did it!

We hope projects like these inspire you to create your next epic project using ProductionCrate assets.
