This goes along with my previous post today. Next step: we are trying to create pipe smoke that builds over the slot machine and fills the entire frame until it is diffcult to see through it.... and then on a sound cue the pipe smoke gets sucked back from where it came (in 1/2 a second). I've been playing around with Particular (tons of parameters!), but can't seem to get the effect working properly.... plus, it's taking forever for my G5 to render even one frame.... like 2 minutes.
Anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.
