Treed, thanks for the info. I will be looking forward to the new site. I was hoping to make the effects without additional plugins like afterburn though.

In maya there is Areteis Pyro for those effects,

for max i think we need to wait for chaos AURA...

In afterburn is very difficult too..


We can do the simulation with pflow, but what about the Photorealistic render?


bye

What do you mean by "Photorealistic render"?

I think mental ray is realistic enough.

Afterburn is a Photoreal render volumetric effect,with shadow ecc..

with pflow, u can do the simulation of the explosion, but when u go to render ur scene, what u see?Cubes?sphere with some cool materials?? without some sort of volumetric effect,the explosion can't be Photoreal..

Anyone know when this Aura will be released? It looks really nice, and are there ways to do something like this with afterburn and pflow?

For volumetric effects you need AfterBurn, I haven't heard of any free plugin for those...
 
Old 01 January 2004   #24
See first you need the movement of the particles. After that you add all the volumetric goodies to them to get the look you want. And no afterburn is incredibly easy to learn.

Also I have a scene with Afterburn and PFlow and I need help. How do I get AB to only effect this certain event in PFlow. I have the PFlow-AB operator in the event I want it in, but the AB effect is going on the whole particle system. Any ideas?

print screen

show us the flow and we could hunt the problem down for you.
after burn and pflow works great together with the 3.1 release

Well I can't give you the max file because the files to big or just a screenshot, cuz the maximum size is 20kb. I can get it to be 50KB but not 20KB.

Are you sure that in the Afterburn settings (Environment tab) you are selecting the Pflow-Aburn operator and not the PFSource?

just zip or rar the file, then see what you get. max files are outrageously bloated i have a few 50+MB files that zip down to 4mb

Yeah, I tried that but it was still too large of a file.
