Title: contrail
Post by: archonforest on February 07, 2017, 12:16:32 PM
Looking for a way to create contrail(the white smoke/fume looking line that is after an airplane.)

Trying to paint one but does not like it so far. If u have an idea pls let me know.

small circular image map projected by camera into thin cloud comes to mind. There's also a blue node way, I think posted by Matt years ago.

Here's a basic setup. You can use perpective cam or ortho (for straight lines), but the masking works differently. Simple shape for mask works also.
