End Of Week 03

Hi guys,
This week we had to do a Twister I think the end result turned out pretty good! I used an old model & fragmented it using Thinking Particles. I then used Particle Flow to control, when the fragments fly off into the Twister. The twister itself is done using Particle Flow & Afterburn it took quite a long time to render the actual twister but i think it was worth it.

End Of Week 02

This week we went straight into explosions using a missile with a particle smoke trail to blow up a bunker. I ran out of time this week due to rendering but I'm hoping to use Thinking Particles, FumeFX & PFlow to blow up a Police car in the same way we did this tutorial.

End Of Week 01

Ok its the end of the first week of my course. This week was a few general tuts to get into PFlow & Afterburn creating Clouds, Cigarette Smoke & Steam. This was pretty tough for a first week but very interesting for week one.

I've also been learning Thinking Particles a very powerful program for creating particle FX. It's a bit complicated in some respects but in others it makes work flow a lot easier.

Today I start my course in PFlow (Particle Flow) FX in 3DS Max. I'm really looking forward to this I've already done a course in FumeFX & that went pretty well.

The website is going well but i still need to sort a load of work to put on it. I'm tempted to just put it up & add to it as i get it done.
