Effects with Particle Systems
1.
The Particle System
This session we get to grips with the Unity Particle system, and learn how to use it for a variety of effects.

2.
Adding Lighting To Particles
In this Live Training Session, we will look at creating visual effects for games using Particle Systems. The techniques we will learn include using trail effects, adding noise to Particle Systems and creating particles which shed light on the scene. We will be using content from the Unity Particle Pack which is available as a free download from the Unity Asset Store.

Fun with Explosions!
With a title like that, do you really need a description? Everyone likes blowing stuff up and so that is exactly what we are going to do. In this session we will be playing around with physics. We will be using impact force, overlap spheres, and other shenanigans to rain down havoc on the denizens of our game world. Don't forget to wear safety glasses. Tutor: Mike Geig

Cinematic Explosions - PIT
PIT stands for Putting it Together. In this session we will be combining knowledge of particles, audio, and physics to build a complete and cinematic explosion effect. Let's give Michael Bay a run for his money! Tutor - Mike Geig
