Smile in Astro Boy

In the making of ,they said that the clouds were made with Nurbs Spheres. I did the same thing to my scene but now, i can't figure out how to convert theses nurbs into good looking clouds.

maybe they have special plugin or software? try to emit fluid from object, and then set initial state

They could be used as container for fluids.

Normally, what you see in the layout are just place holders. The real thing could be made from anything even from different software.

The one I really want to play with is Houdini's cloud rig.

Maya Fluids are great for clouds. They light nicely, and render fairly quickly.
