View Full Version : alphabets turning into smoke?!!

Hello !

Am working on an intro sequence where the title dissipates into very elegant smoke.Its a common opening.
In a brain freeze situation .
Any tutorials or ideas? help me get started on this.

Thanks very much.

Perhaps you can use a map of your text into fluid and then just do a "simulation" with your own setup ( gravity, density, swirl, turbulences...)

USe the paint fluids tool and import your file into density and color. Include an alpha where you dont want fluid and increase the density scale for good clarity. For a good fast sim use a 2d fluid with high resolution.
