Default Help, I want to create the illusion of speed with smoke or fog

Hello all my MAYAN friends!!!

I have a quick question....I would like to create the illusion of a jet, moving at a high velocity, through clouds or smoke. I would like the clouds to pour over the sides of the jet. Think of it as a spaceship re-entering the atmospere if that makes sense. It should almost blur the clouds as they pour ove the sides.


Any suggestions would be MORE than helpful!!!!


Your humble MAYA newbie,

:p


And thank you in advance!!!!

I would use particle clouds, and create a surface emitter on the side of your screen, keep the jet and camera relatively stationary and shoot the particles past the jet. Maybe set up a collision object to make the particles sweep around the jet. I did something like that once. Not exactly the look I think you're going for, but you get the point.
