So I know that questions like this have been answered but not very well or at all. Sometimes the people asking don’t have very good examples or are not very thorough on what they are looking for. So, I will do my best on asking the question in a more complete way.
I am looking for help with creating a spaceship engine exhaust type look. I have been trying to get it to look right for almost a week or so and still cannot get the right look. I am trying to shoot for something like this.
Yes, I know it is from Halo 2, but it seems to have the right look and style that I am shooting for.
Anyways, here is where I keep having issues. I cannot seem to get the right shape to the exhaust look. I am using Fluid Effects 3D Container with a Emitter in it that emits into the box, thing is that the box contains all of the particles and they do not spread in a natural way (or in a shape that looks like the one in the video). Is there a way to change the shape of the 3D Container? If there another way to get the spaceship exhaust fumes to look right? What is a (if there is one) better method for creating such as look?
