Problems With Fluid Smoke
on Mar 28, 2016 at 5:48:47 pm

I'm trying to create a cryo jet effect in Maya 2013, but I'm having a lot of trouble with forming the proper shape and getting the right quality of smoke.
I've tried using volume axis to help create the shape, but then the smoke reacts as if it's getting hit with a lot of turbulence.

This is the effect I want:

Hi Marie,

First off all, some how the link is not working. both of them. Don't know if just me.

The other think is, if you use Aftereffects, u can Build nice smoke into the sceen. Just a other solution maybe.

cheers.
Mohammad

Sorry about the links. If you copy and paste them into your address bar they should work.

Thank you for your response. I'm not quite sure what you mean by using Aftereffects, but I'll make sure to look up a method to help. I know little to none about Aftereffects.

Hi Marie,

Thx, with copy the link I was able to see the clip.

What I mean with After Effects is, that stuff like smoke, Fire, rain,...aso. Is easy to put into your animation.

Check this Tutorial for examble helped me a lot for making smoke.

Hope I could help.

Well, I guess it is time to learn After Effects. Thank you so much for the link! I'll see if I can figure it out from here.

Thanks, Mohammed! You helped me out a lot more than you know.
