A new Photoshop plugin that lets users create electric rays, lightning bolts, electrical charges, power currents and more.
Richard Rosenman has recently revealed Electra, a new Photoshop plugin that lets users create electric rays, lightning bolts, electrical charges, power currents and more.
Electra is said to work by generating a ray between two points. “Since the algorithm is recursive, calling it again subdivides that segment into two, then again into four, then eight, etc. Depending on the resolution limit specified, we end up with a highly-detailed ray.”
“Electra’s resulting output is stunningly realistic. As a matter of fact, Electra has been modeled after real-world lightning ray examples and developed to simulate as closely as possible natural phenomena,” states the description. “A multitude of options allow for meticulously-generated rays including the ability to specify the start and end points, the start and end ray thickness, the resolution, the amount of displacement, the number of rays, the random seed and much, much more.”
