Custom Cloud Shapes
on Apr 1, 2014 at 4:06:42 pm

I want to create custom cloud shapes in maya to make clouds show different models of characters such as a gremlin, yoda, a fight scene or text to create a typography using the cloud simulation. I know how to make clouds using the 3D container but nothing other wise, I am a beginner in Maya but I want to do this for a project. any help will be appreciated.

I am not an expert, but I think I would just use a volumetric shader on blendshapes to achieve the look you are talking about. So go from shape A (generic cloud) to shape B (gremlin), and then animate the blendshape.
