View Full Version : Creating a dust cloud in Maya

03 March 2008, 06:29 PM
I'm currently working on a Maya project for school and in the animation I have a concrete wall falling and I want a cloud of dust to come up as the wall hits the floor. I can't find any information on how to do this in Maya so I was wondering if anyone could help me out or point me to a tutorial that could help.

You can use sprites emitted from a volume emitter and some field, like a turbulance wind or uniform, combined with some expression in the sprite shape node... Let me know if you need some more information or example...
