Monkey, thats the tutorial I ended up using. I originally used the tutorial supplied by the Maya help files, but had no luck. i found that tutorial (on a different site, area.autodesk.com. Great site BTW). Followed it, and the results came out great.
Im gonna need clouds for my next project, so Im trying to figure out how to make them and whatnot. Thanks agian though guys!
Does anyone know of a tutorial on how to animate the clouds moving and shaping and whatnot as time passes?
