Hi,

I am looking for a particle effect to mimic rounds hitting a wall. Debris doesn't have to be included.

I am looking for 'dust/ smoke' hits similar to those seen in full metal jacket, when Animal opens up on the building with his M60.

Thanks

Check this video: http://www.nightcast.net/permanent/stockdemo.mov
Or the Trailer for Project One in the fxhome cinema.

Both were made using our gun effects stock pack (see link at my signature)


For bullet impacts, I'd always recommend proper stock footage. I've yet to see a particle effect that doesn't like like a video game ricochet.

As an aside, if you have some blue/green screen you could always try the following method linked below from differing angles and then key out and add into your footage. This is what I plan to use for bullet hits because, as has been said above, it always looks videogamey when using particles.

Hope that helps!
