View Full Version : PFlow Smoke in Max 7

07-30-2006, 11:12 PM
Hey, can anyone help me make hyper realistic smoke using the PFlow tool in Max 7. I have already set up my Particle emitters, and have animated everything correctly, I just can't figure out how to make it look like smoke. Also if anyone can tell me how to set up my PFlow emitter so that the particles look like gas, but behave (animate) like water. please let me know. Tutorials welcome, except the one from 3dkingom, I've already tried that one.
