This might've been covered in a thread somewhere here, I can't really find one, but if it is, flame me, yell at me.. i dunno. lol. But here it goes...
Ok I'm doing this visual effects shot of a rocket being fired out of a bazooka and hitting a building. I'm pretty happy with how I got the fire to look, it's not the greatest, but I'm happy with it nonetheless. Anyways, the rocket smoke I want to get for it is really fine and whispy. Since it's a small rocket, I don't want it having that thick smokey look. I've tried and tried and just can't get it right. The smoke I'm talking about is similar to the smoke that gets ejected when the missile turns its engines on here: http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...avelin+missile
My shot is similar to that clip too.
I feel kinda bad asking, but if anybody can help, or if anybody wants to help, it'd be greatly appreciated.
Practice makes perfect. Nobody's perfect, so why practice?
