Creating cigarette smoke


(wcassella) #1

In a scene from the movie I am making with my friends, the main character smokes a cigarette. However, as we filmed the scene in his bedroom, he didn’t want to smoke in there. So we’re adding the smoke in later with Blender. I have been fiddling with the smoke settings, and I can’t find something quite what I’m looking for. I just can’t get the wispy, floaty look that cigarette smoke has in still air. Here is a picture of the effect I am trying to get.

If someone could help me out, that’d great. Thanks!

The reason real smoke is wispy is there are air currents. I would try to use some force fields to give the smoke that wispy feeling

The effort involved in making this realistic would say to me - just smoke the cigarette irl and then spray some air freshener :slight_smile:
