Title: Expanding Smoke Column
Post by: WAS on October 20, 2021, 06:18:27 pm
Utilizing Hetzen's Zoom/Bulge function, you can easily obtain expanding smoke columns by placing it's centre where you want expansion, and adjusting radius and such.

I think this method is easier to control than multiple surface layers and multiple altitudes to keep track of.

Here is a quick breakdown picture show.

Is "Hetzen's Zoom/Bulge function" something he shared here? I really would like to take a look.
How do you get the "inclined" look? (if is really inclined). Really nice experiments...

I'll share an example project in the file section in just a minute or two. Rendering a preview.

Also the Zoom / Bulge function is shared in the Function section. Really powerful a lot of uses that haven't been discovered yet. Like it could be use to scale one side of a square simple shape, etc.
