    Challenge 6: Particle Rocketexhaust & Explosion

    Started working on some particlestuff for the challenge. Want to enhance my skills at making smoke/fire using native 3DSMax without any plugins. Thought I would blow something up with a high particlecount The question is .. What will I blow up.. Maybe something that will leave a burned out mark of "Evermotion" - We will see. I havent gotten very far, and I am not pleased with the looks of it yet, so I will only post the PFlow tree for you to look at

    OMG! I thought that my PFlow tree is "a bit" to complicated, but Yours is EXTREMELY complicated :shock:
    My PC will refuse computing so many particles with so many deflectors... One frame would take about 5 minutes to render... I think so...
    Going back to Your work - I'm waiting for some stills or animations.

    PS: Are you really going to use sphere particles? Or You will change them into facing?

    I am still unsure what I will be making. Probably I will make lots of things and pick out what is best, or continue with what I like the most. Maybe I will not manage to complete anything cool at all

    I usually blend different kinds together. If I work with other than black background and want a shot with an animated camera I choose spheres, cause then you get better volumetrics, and have the oppertunity to use bumpmaps at a good level.

    hey

    My whole computer crashed some weeks ago, and its totally busted Lightning struck down in my appartment and destroyed most of my household equipment including my computer, tv, stereo etc. So all my max scenes are destroyed if the HD cant be fixed. I have my laptop tho, but its kinda weak. I will buy a new PC in August when I get money from work. Kinda sad story :/
