Smoke animation by curve guide (2.56)


I’m trying to do vacuum pipe that will suck smoke from scene.

I’m trying to do this by curve guide but smoke doesn’t follow by path proper.

Maybe you know better way to do this?

I attached blend file when I tried to force smoke cube to follow path but as you can see I failed

Please help

You have a better chance using a lattice over a path. And I didn’t even have to open the file.
