Create an Animated Jet Trail

Hi everyone,
This is my first Blender video tutorial, in which I illustrate how to create a fully animated jet trail, like something left behind by a missile. Note that this is NOT a smoke simulator tutorial - and that’s the beauty of it: instant renders and no baking!

Modeling: easy
Materials/Textures: intermediate
Animation: intermediate
