Here's a question for all you ghoul and ghosts lovers out there. I have an
establishing shot of a scene in a grave yard "at midnight" kind of look. My
textures really spice it up and give just the right feel though it really
needs some night close to the ground fog to pull it together. I've tried a
clipped environmental fog with an animated 3D clouds texture on it along
with a little clouds paint effects in the background. It looks "cute" at
best but still doesn't convey that soupy fog feeling I'm looking for.
I am a semi noobie when it comes to particle FX animation so I haven't
really exploited that venue.
Any ideas out there? Do you guys know of any place I can start reading up on
particles a bit beyond the Maya default help?
