I''ve been looking EVERYWHERE for any type of article of making electricity like effects, but I can''t even find 1 (decent) article on it. Does anyone know of any good online resources? If not, can anyone explain how I might go about creating that effect? I have a particle engine set up already, if this effect were to require one. any help would be appreciated ps - i said lightning/electrical effect, but I really need an electricity type effect, I just figured they''re relatively similar ByteMe95::~ByteMe95() My S(h)ite

Triangle-strip from point a to point b, add random values for irregularities, add forks/branches for lightning.

ui thank you for your replies but neither of those replies helped too much
i cant decipher the vertex shader code, and the triangle strip suggestion was much too vague

Be inspired by fractal rivers, but limit the iterations, and add branching. Note that I''ve never actually tried this idea, but I think it could probably work

I would use juxtaposed transitional frame relaying
