I have wanted to recreate some spectacular photos in Blender, but I can not get the “smoke” to act/look like anything in these images.
There are three main types of “smoke” that I want to immitage.
First is the cloud of steam from the deludge system. Basically, the rocket flash steams a bunch of water that protects the launch pad.
Second is the thick and opaque smoke of the SRBs.
Third is the translucent exhaust of the main engines.
