Hello, i´ve got a question(please excuse my bad english, im german)

Is it possible to make a blood effect stay at a wall for example.
The blood should not change its form all the time.
I want to do this for a blood effect on the wall.

Thanks for help.

Did you try searching the presets? Or you can go to 'attributes' and adjust the position frame by frame?

Yeah, this sure sounds like more of a task for stock footage than an effects engine.

You mean you don't want to blood to move around? Okay, well, that's not really a problem. All you need to do is create your effect in EffectsLab, then go in "Render => Render current frame" which will, evidently enough, render your current frame. Make sure you have gone in your render settings and changed the output form to the option with "image" in it - the one that will render in PNG - and check "render with alpha channel" - this will ensure that everything surrounding the blood is transparent. Anyway, when you render the current frame, EffectsLab will render the picture of blood, and you can then import that picture in the application and put it on the wall. Now, it's gonna stay in place. smile

Before rendering, though, make sure all your other layers are turned off - click on the tick button beside the object's name; it will become red, like this: mad:. Now, all that can be seen is the blood.

Good luck! razz

(Or, of course, you can just do as FXhomer46784 said and use stock footage. It would probably turn out better, although you might have to pay for it.)
