Snow Falling

I was curious how hard it would be to mimic falling snow using a particle system. This is what I got:

(sorry about having to download it. it needs to stay as high-quality as possible for you to really see it)

I actually ended up using two particle systems here: one for the falling snow and another the give it a misty look so the snow seems like there’s a lot more snow than there actually is. I also added a couple wind deflectors and a curve guide to keep the flakes from falling straight down.

looks nice
Is your method possible for a light snow too?

@shadowbane: Hmm…never thought about that. I’ll have to try it.
