View Full Version : dust particles

05 May 2011, 04:56 PM
Hi all,

I've tried this several times but never got the result I'm happy with. What I want is an effect you get in a closed room where dust is slowly moving around in the air.... first example that pops up is here.... at the beginning of the video:

i've tried using pcloud with gradient opacity map but it's not the same...

anyone know some good tuts?

Well, I would use a simple particle system and play around with the settings so that the particles are spread across the scenes and moving very slowly. As particles I would either use textures objects or simple bitmaps depending on the shot, but I guess it won't matter because they'll be blurry and out of focus.
