Does anyone know of any good tutorials or can point me in the right direction on how to create a similar dust cloud effect like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TPibZO71bI ?

I have been following this tutorial which sort of gets some of the results I'm looking for and at least helps me start to learn fluids

Thanks for any help.

What you could do is create a fluid container. Emit from a volume emitter(sphere). Set your density bouyancy at a negative value. Sim Scale 1.5. (All depends on your container size.) These settings may have to be keyed since it is along the lines of an explosion. All grids set to on. Texture opacity off. Tweak other settings to your liking. Then, create 3 or 4 volume axis fields around your fluid emitter to create the wave effect. These will have to be keyed as well. Try to offset the magnitude on each field so the shape is randomized like you see in the commercial. Hope this helps.
