I've checked different tutorials on the use of Shatter effect and it looks as no one seem concerned by the debris position at the end of the shattering. They disappear like ghost and that's that!
I'm having a scene of an earthquake, buildings crumble and my debris disappear under the ground! This is stupid and unrealistic . I tried different values in the parameters of the effect but to no result. Anyone has an idea on how to solve that issue?
I use AE CC2014 and E3D on a PC with Windows 7 Ultimate 64bits. I've also asked the same question on VideoCopilot.net but got answers not relevant to my purpose.
Thanks for any tip
You need to create gradient maps to control the force influence.
I've never used this I'll try to understand what it does and how to make it, hoping I'm clever enough...Ok just checked how tomake the gradient but I don't see how it will help stop my bricks and marble on the floor of the scene.
