    I am stuck.

    I am creating a sci-fi movie and I need an effect for someone being sucked into a black hole. I have a green screen person and he is all keyed out and ready, but how to make a cool lokking black hole using Photoshop and/or After Effects !?!?!

    If you have any tips regarding Photoshop can you keep them simple seeing as I only just bought Photoshop CS3.

    Can you post a low rez version of the keyed footage? You probably want to animate something that matches that.

    The closer you are to a black hole, the greater the gravity pull. So in theory if you fall in feet first, your feet would be stretched away from you, leading to (and I swear this is genuine) spaghettification. The easiest way to get this look I reckon would be to use one of the distort effects like bulge or optics compensation.

    Hope that helps
