    Jet engine effect (shock diamonds/mach disks)



    blend file: https://webdisk.ucalgary.ca/~djetown...burner_4.blend

    I realized that you don't have to do the entire plume in one particle system. This effect uses three systems: one for the main plume, another for the shock diamonds, and a third for streak effects.

    The shock diamonds / mach disks have a cyclic extrapolation IPO on their halo size, and also have a procedural magic texture with a colourband applied, as well as have 'star' on.

    Some things I want to try:
    Create 'negative zones' offset exactly from the 'positive zones' as seen in pictures like http://www.spl.ch/gallery/pics/DSC03448_800x600.jpg
    Make the tail flicker.
    Take better advantage of the new particle system, possibly including support for arbitrary durations.
    Better effects upon startup/shutdown.

    Thank you! I've been looking for a decent jet effect for ages.
