Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to create this smoke effect?

Hi, I am trying to create a stylistic explosion. I am stuck at the last part where the smoke need to dissipate/fade from the center outwards.

I used a burst emitter with velocity to push the smoke away from the emitter. Thus the smoke that is farthest away from the emitter will die earlier. It gives impression as if the smoke is sucked back into the center of explosion.

On the contrary, I am trying to make the smoke dies from the center of the explosion. Does anyone have a suggestion?

This is the movie that I captured https://lukas3d.smugmug.com/Test-learning/n-SFwCWs/

I would say it would be best for that to happen within your smoke/explosion texture - makes the most sense and easiest to implement!
