Thick Smoke Effect
show user profile  tyrannosauRoss

Anybody got a link for a tutorial for a thick smoke effect?
An object behind will be "morphing" behind so needs to hide it, with occasional parts coming out.

If you can picture an anime/cartoon fight scene where limbs appear randomly and the smoke hides the fighting....infact the sims also has this styel....well thats the type of effect Iam aiming for!

Thick like in the cartoons? I don't think that even qualifies as a smoke effect anymore - though, Afterburn does have a cartoon shader.

I really think you're looking for something more along the lines of a sphere with an animated noise modifier applied, and some kind of appropriate material.
Specialty: Non-organic modelling and effects.
Setup: 3D Studio 2010 with finalRender.
Rig: No, no I can't.
