Please excuse me if this has been covered before (I executed a search and didn't find much on this)

But is Effectslab useful with creating a "blood effect"? Example: A guy is shot in the head, an explosion of blood/brains blows out the other side. (yea it's graphic but...)

I saw something similar to that in the clip from "Project One" (only the blood blew out of the guys back) - how is this don? I didn't see anythng in the tutorials.

Thanks for the time

It would look better if you did it a more practical way.

Lots of blood effects on Project One were done using our stock footage. Which can be applied using an fxhome product.

OK - here's a new question in the same area as my previous question. The "blood splatter" in the stock footage looks cool... however, what if a person wanted to add MORE blood

Example: * A guy has a gun to his head
* The gun fires
* The guys head is pretty much blown off

This would create more of an explosion of the head, not just a blood splatter. (think of the scene from 'dawn of the dead' when the cop busts in with a shotgun and blows the guys head off)

** I know that REAL SFX is an option but so is effectslab... is this something that can be done? If so... how??

(disclaimer: yes I know my sfx needs are becoming increasingl more violent but there's a good reason for it... I think) wink

Thanks all!

Yes it's possible and there are some blood spurt presets on FX Home but CG blood tends to look a little too "electric" and you would be better using make up effects on set. You have to have somewhere to film that it's ok to get messy though!
