Is there a way to get bits of the fire to break off and flot away together.

You may get a spawn test to pull that off, its just that right now all the fire that I do looks like dust and not a solid flame. Same goes with the smoke.

I'm trying to get a nice smoke/fire effect with pflow and AB. I have two different AB systems and in one of the systems I have and explode deamon so its a really hot bottom but it has really transparent smoke. I still have much to work on the explode deamon part at the bottom but overall its coming together.

Hey this is a really nice start ...
I think that the smoke should be a little more darker... (Also make the background lighter too IMO)

I have been trying to make some fire without ABurn...
This is the final result ... added a little bit of smoke too...
I Still don't like the color of it

Alright I have been playing around with the AB settings and I've improved on the effect. I darkened the smoke and the fire so its more tendril like.

All right, I did some playing around and this is what I got for a fast test. There are some things that I will change, but I will post this for now. I hope that you all can take this and run with it.

I have a m-blur on the camera, and 1 wind with a p-age for the material.

If you have any questions, I will post the file so that you can all use it as a start.

I know that there is no smoke, but I’m taking this one task at a time.

Here's a test that I did quite a while back now with plfow. Its a just for fun thing, I though it would be cool to do some kind of meteorite breaking up effect. The flame is a little lame but there you go.


p.s. Could the biped posts be removed from theis topic mod? They are as the poster stated, completely off topic.... Hmm

If anyone dont have any place to upload their PFlow MAX files, jpeg images, animations etc - I've just installed a file uploader here :

PFlow Uploader

Wich you all can use for more easy sharing of files.. e.g. - Upload a .max file and a .jpg file of the same name, so they display underneath eachother, an you can view the image and download the max if interrested. Or drop a .nfo .txt of the same name also. Hope this is interresting for you
Old 01 January 2004   #73
I just uploaded a pic and a max file for people to take a look at.

Old 01 January 2004   #74
Nice! Glad it actually worked I changed the name of the .max file so it was the same as the .jpg so they would be located above each other - So they would be in context
Old 01 January 2004   #75
Wow, deetee thanks for the uploader. I will work on some stuff and get it up there soon. Is there a way that we can link to it on this forum?

Thanks again for the upload.
