starcraft 2 wings of liberty: tosh cloak FX

2010. This is an effect that I created for the character Tosh. The task was to recreate this awesome decloaking effect done by the guys in Blizzard’s pre-rendered effects department. Only catch was, it had to be done in realtime. I accomplished this by basically pushing the engine’s FX animation pipeline as far as I could get it. Animated textures built from procedural noise materials in 3DSMax, scrolling UVs, electrical spline ribbons, smoke particles, full screen lens glare on cards, displacement animation¬†– I used everything it took to get the look as close as possible.

I think you can see the crawl of the patterns a bit better in this one:
