Smoke effect

hey, i hope i’m in the right forum for this question.

i want to put a smoke effect in, as in, cigarette smoke. i’ve had a crack at acheiving it using this one tutorial i found on the “noob to pro” wiki, only it doesn’t really acheive the thin kinda of plume that cigarette smoke gets. plus the transparency didn’t work. so i kinda just had a big grey morass showing up

so, anyway, is anybody able to help me with this?

thanks

The smoke part of this tutorial would help. http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Tutorials/Particles-FireworksIt’s fireworks, but you can just take the smoke part and tweak it to your needs.

I found this makes very effective cigarette smoke and hot steam.

Why doesn’t someone just post a BLEND? These are simple effects that people don’t want to recreate via tutorials.

Like a repository of effects thread or something…?

cheers, guys, i’ll give 'em a shot.
