View Full Version : nCloth and fire

01-15-2008, 06:13 PM
I understand the basics of ncloth. I'm just wondering if a really good looking fire is possible with a fabric. would I use a plane with a constraint in the middle having the wind blow upwards? Can I constrain some of he points to a sphere and have the cloth pull around it? Am I in the right ballpark of thinking here?

Thank You,

It makes sense, as this is how a lot of stage fire props are created.

Here's a quick example. (

In 3d, you have the benifit of being able to add glow to the surface.

Good luck, and be sure to post your results!
