  1. Pyro Jet Exhaust

    Hi guys ! I'm trying to make a afterburner, jet gas exhaust effects, but I'm struggling right now. I looked at the Pyro Jet Exhaust HDA from SideFX (https://www.orbolt.com/asset/SideFX::pyrojetexhaust). I opened it and look how it works but I still can't understand. There is no combustion, no flames, no smoke, is it just fuel/gas ? If this so, how can I make it collide with an object ? Like when a rocket beginning to launch, the afterburner collide with the floor. Thank you for your help guys
  2. Steam Propellant FX

    Hey folks, I've been trying to tackle a smoke element which involves an object being launched at a high speed with a propellant(something like hot steam coming through a nozzle, I guess). The object is a canister of sorts(imagine the propellant to be pressurized gas in the canister) - which tumbles and rotates on its central axis, thus having to orient the 'jet of steam'. It also interacts with the ground as it bounces. Since it has a small exit for the fluid, my emitter should be small. :\ I have tried the following approaches - 1. Small emitter - high velocity - high substeps(16) After a lot of tweaks, the best I could crunch out of this was a trail that didn't have any defined shape of sorts, and could not achieve the 'cone'-ish shape that I was looking for 2. Particle Trail - as custom velocity -as emitter -as force guide Same Problem as above - particles only left a smear with no shape - even with high substeps(32) 3. Modelled Hollow container with exit - placed emitter within - plugged density of emitter to divergence -high substeps(32) Got a more promising result - but at high velocity portion of the animation(especially at assumed 'launch' it would only leave puffs of smoke. Unfortunately, I cannot post any scenes at the moment - will try on recreate the approach and the problems in an example scene. :\ Is there any other solutions that anyone could suggest? Or add up on what I've been trying?
