Create this effect? Smoke + Light
on Apr 5, 2010 at 6:22:50 am

Hi guys, i'm wondering how i can be creating this effect





Right on 24 secounds.

The smoke is problary made with particular v2? Which i do have.
And then i just need a light added to it, and then just particular v2 to the tail which i know how to create.

It's mostly the smoke and light i'm wondering for.

I've tried to create that sort of smoke, but i haven't succeed yet =|

Try emitting some particles and then adding cc vector blur and play with the settings. It will get you pretty close.

best,

I've been trying today, and i'm not comming close to it :S I'm not sure which functions i will need to change on the particles etc.
Also when i added CC vector blur, it just went worse.

Here's settings i was changing.



[[PARTICULAR V2 ON SOLID "Particular v2 Smoke"]]

[Emitter]
Particle/sec: 100000
Emitter type: Sphere
Position Z: -1000
Velocity: 500
Emitter Size X,Y,Z: 1000

[Particle]
Particle size: 1
Size over life: \ ramp (Birth -> Death)
Transfer mode: Add

[Shading]
Shading: On
Nominal Distance: 100

[Physics];Turbulence field
Affect Position: 1000
Affect SIZE: 2

[[LIGHT SETTINGS]]
Light type: Point
Intensity: 200%


[[NULL object]]
3D Layer

Parent Light position to NULL position



_____
This layer here down doesn't rly matter, just that tail, which i knows how to do already.

[[PARTICULAR V2 ON SOLID "Particular line"]]
Parent Position Z to NULL position Z
Parent Position X,Y to NULL position
(size over life, opacity over life, blending: add, particle size: 1-2, opacity: xx..)


_____________

Also i'm wondering how i get the nice lightning on the smoke too.. I'm using the shading, but when i had that on it was light up all the particles.
So i lowered the "Normal distance" function which made it smaller, and also made 200% intensity on the light because i wanted to make it lighter (but i didn't realize it went much lighter).
