This DVD consists of five stand-alone lessons that cover various techniques using Maya’s fluid dynamics. In each lesson, Wayne walks you through his process, providing the viewer with a greater understanding of how to set up dynamic fluid simulations for production shot assets. Wayne starts by showing you how to create a believable fire simulation. He demonstrates how to control Maya fluids with a variety of textures and expressions to create a highly detailed and believable flame thrower effect. He then demonstrates how to create various smoke effects, including the desired “wispy smoke” effect. Wayne also discusses his methods for controlling fluid emission and motion using a variety of emission controls, collisions, and fields, to produce complex smoke, fire and dust simulations.

Topics covered:
Creating believable fire
Creating oil smoke assets
Texture Maya Fluids with detailed ramps and expression
Creating wispy looking smoke
Creating a smoke bomb effect with the use of dynamic fields
Creating ground dust elements that could be used for various effects
Lighting Maya Fluids
Rendering Maya Fluids
