Example text

Render off the scene. Information: The material assigned to the Geosphere in the scene is just a basic material to simulate a dark metal sphere (hence a large highlight). If you need a more accurate representation, try adding a Raytrace map to its Reflection map slot; the beauty of flame geometry is that it’ll be reflected within the Raytrace map! Taking it further The end result of this tutorial does work quite well for emitters of this size; however, for larger surfaces and bigger fires a lot of additional work is required.

This can be useful instead of having to add it to every event in the system we create. The assigned material has a pretty low opacity value, but bear in mind that due to Additive transparency, the resulting particles appear bright because of the amount of particles present in the scene and the fact that they overlap. 33 34 FIRE 18 Drag out a Birth operator to the Particle View event display to create a new event. Label the event Birth Positions. Wire the input of this new event to the output of the PF Source 01 event.

2 cm and its Falloff Zone value to 3 cm. In the Scope group, choose Selected Particle Systems and choose the PF Source Small Influence in the list. Information: We’ve set up root events at this stage so that we can get the Keep Apart operators built up in the original system, referencing these new root events (systems). The second Keep Apart operator to be added drags the original Flame particles upwards, creating additional folds in the geometry. The particle system that drives this will have a reduced number of particles so that the attractions are defined as in the reference material.
