I'm just learning a few things with particular and i was wondering if anyone could help me out with this.
I made a short graphic of 'epic' being written in smoke. I started by drawing a path of when i wanted the smoke to go and then i just moved the emitter along the path a little at a time and set key frames mainly by guessing. It took a couple of go's but I got it.
My question is, can you make the emitter just follow a path over time like you would in 3d stroke? It took me about an hour and a half the way I did it but would have been alot faster if you could just set the emitter to follow the path and not have heaps of keyframes.
Would you say that 3d-stroke is not true 3d then as it works from paths. I guess this is why its hard to get exactly what you want with 3d stroke when you start moving the camera around.
I think I just got what you meant in your review of 3d-stroke now, is this the kind of think you were taking about?
