How to create Afterburner effect ???
show user profile  Darius
Hello pro brothers,

Those of you who use Maya,I have a request for you. If could tell me how do I create afterburner effect in Maya? I don't want to know how to create fire. I just need to know how to create that hot air behind the fire. You can give me a tutorial for only that hot air or, you can give me a tutorial for fire with hot air effect.I would really appreciate it.

Here you can see what I'm looking for. The hot air and fire behind the plane.
Thank you.

One way is to

1) create particle system that emits geo (emit lots of cubes, simple geo is enough) that resembles the speed and shape of the afterburn effect you want
2) render out the particle pass - as many passes as u want, lit, objectID, etc. you only need 1 (for its alpha channel), but more could help.
3) create the effect in post: comp in that particle pass while applying blurring and distortion effects to that particle pass

^ that would look the best, as a quickie, you can also apply a 100% transparent material to your particles or mesh with noise mod and pump up refraction. can also export with alpha for use later.

Pete draper describes this in detail in his book deconstructing the elements.

You can see the result here
