Smoke animation in blender 2.49


I would like to create an animation where smoke comes out of a pipe and forms a cloud in the shape of a single digit number. Firstly, could someone give me help on how to create a smoke animation in blender 2.49 (At the moment I can’t download 2.5) and secondly also help me to form a number with the smoke?

Thanks a lot.

Hi NuclearMosquito,

I wrote a tutorial on volumetric smoke in Blender 2.49 a couple months ago. I have no idea how you would form a number in the smoke. Hope this helps you some.
