The character in my 3D, Black & White, Film Noir, short film needs to smoke cigarettes. Any suggestions?
So far I haven’t found any tutorials on smoking or cigarette ash progression. I need to see him smoking, not just the smoke coming off of the burning cigarette. Does anyone know of any addons out there that have this built-in? (I can dream).
I’m trying to get a handle on all of the special effects that are in the script. The story calls for several weather effects, a character smoking, a drop of liquid slowly forming, and a slow-motion explosion. I’d like to start testing concepts while I’m still developing the look of the film. I’d at least like to work out a plan for them.
I also need to figure out how to stage a couple of shots that will be filmed in reflections. (Not sure if that would be considered an SPFX shot or not).
