Stargate Kawoosh – Draft one

Back in the helm, so this is the Kawoosh effect from Stargate.

I might be a little late on the bandwagon for this but who doesn’t love the kawoosh?

There are a few ways to go about this one, by far the easiest to start with is this short and sweet method in 3DS max, link here

huh seems the original video has been taken down over a year later… well it was great trust me. Maybe I’ll re-create it.


First draft here

Time willing I’ll finish this one of with some live action.


Other methods worth looking into are

  • Particles (headache)
  • Blendsapes in Mudbox and maya – would work nicely

I’m looking to do a new shot each week, time is of the essence though so
