I have an Idea for a game I want to create but do not know where to start on somethings I want to achieve in the game.
I was curious if anyone knew or could explain how say Bejeweled or Candy Crush or games of that type had diamonds or candies exploding and yet they all look like glass or transparent objects.
How would a person create these type of effects and how would I go about also creating the explosions.
I use several software's, would I use a 3d package for this or can they be achieved another way?
Is this a Photoshop effect?
How would one go about learning to create the effects the many effects that go into a game?
I appreciate any guidance in these areas.
Many thanks for any help
