- For the Light part, just to clarify what you have to do, since I didn’t have the time in the video: To get into the Lights, you click the 4th top option in the 3D window. When you’re there, click on the eye icons on the Omni lights to hide them, then click on the bottom options to add an Infinite light, and finally use the light rotate tool, which is on the same 3D window.
- The bullets are supposed to have their casing removed after it comes out of the gun(s), so if you want to make it realistic, do not repeat my mistake and try to get rid of it by try hiding layers on the 3D object, or either get a new one
This is how it’s supposed to look like after firing. Credits to Timus of Designerstalk.com for finding this picture:
- For different effects of bullet trails, instead of skewing first then motion blurring, blur first then skew.
- If you have time on your hands, combine real stocks of bullet holes and blood along with the brushes and blend them in.
- Instead of a zombie, you can try cool matrix poses. Search for “gravity” in deviantart’s Stock photos to find some nice ones.
