Shatter effect (for text and other video elements)

Hello all!

I’ve recently discovered and learned about Natron, but there is an effect I’m trying to create that doesn’t seem possible with any of the filters. (I asked on the Discord was told to ask this here.) So, my question is this: Is there a way to create a (glass) shatter effect in Natron?


Do you have an example of what you want to achieve?

I can’t seem to find a simple gif, so here’s a video of a tutorial for doing it in AE:

I don’t need something as complex, but this is the idea.

Sadly I don’t think this is possible in Natron. I think it would rely on particles, which haven’t been implemented. Happy to proven wrong, though!

I think it’d be easier if you used Blender to shatter your object.
