HI guys

 

 

 

Ive been getting into learning different particle effects and so far Ive implemented an explosion effect

and a smoke trail effect into my project but I havent been able to find any samples on how to create

a 3D implentation of a rain drop splat effect.  2D illustration below:

to start, my approach to implement this effect would be to modify my explosion effect and align it flat with a terrain

something like the pic below

My question at this point would be,  is this the right beginning approach to

implementing this effect or should I go with a different approach

 

 

 

below is another visual sample of what I trying to do:

 

a youtube link of the game ultimate ninja storm which gives a perfect illustration of

what Im working towards. the video shows particles being emitted with each foot step taken by a character

 

 

if anyone can point me in the right direction on what I would need to do

to create the splash effect it would be much appreciated

 

 

 

                                 Thankyou
