Muzzleflash

Adding on the muzzle flash plane to a shotgun model.

This tutorial requires you to know the basics of UV mapping, rigging, texturing and animating. Special effects include ejecting shells and shotgun casings, and muzzle flash.

Muzzle Flash

For the muzzle flash we will use a plane textured with opacity flags applied. First off, make room on your UV map, and import in the .OBJ file of the muzzle flash that I will include at the end of this tutorial. Move it into place at the front on the barrel. Then move around the simple plane in your UV editor and put it in an open spot, then add it unto your texture. Then export it to .OBJ, convert to .3DF and rig and animate, but when rigging create a seperate bone for the muzzle flash plane. when animating the fire animation, scale the muzzle flash really small so it is not visible, but on the one frame where the gun kicks back, scale it so it is bigger than the end of the barrel and visible, then scale it back down for all the frames after that.


Ejecting Shells

Simpleshell

This is the simple textured cylinder that we will use in this tutorial.

For the ejecting shotgun shell we will use a simple textured cylinder. First off, make room on your UV map, and import in the .OBJ file of the shell that I will include at the end of this tutorial. Move it into place inside the gun. Then move around the cylinder's UV map in your UV editor and put it in an open spot on your weapon's UV map, then add it unto your texture. Then export it to .OBJ, convert to .3DF and rig and animate, but when rigging create a seperate bone for the shell. when animating the fire animation, on the frames that the arms slide the pump back, make the shell shoot out and fall down as the hunter lowers his gun back into aiming position, and make it slide back into the gun from the bottom where it is not visible to the player.

Notes:

The shell is 36 triangles, so make sure you have enough room to add it. The muzzle flash is only 2.
