Making a plasma

Dear Blender forum,

I am really struggling with making a nice plasma for animation.
Any help/advice would be greatly valued! :slight_smile:

Challenge: Making a plasma (cylinder’ish) inside a square box. The plasma should be more intense in some places than others.

Project: Industrial unit production machine with a plasma inside. One of the doors are open in the square chamber, and you can look into the machine. Here there is a plasma + some metal items.


In which render engine? And it’s allways good to post some images showing what you are looking to achieve. :wink:

It is sort of a faint glowing plasma - which is significantly more intense in some areas.
