I'm trying to recreate this effect in Blender (cycles):

I've animated a mesh using AnimAll, and used it as a particle emitter with wind from the front, but can't seem to get the emitted particles to behave as if they're in air - with the vortexes and swirls you'd associate with e.g. smoke.

  • $\begingroup$ Which physics have you set for your particles? Have you also set a force field, and which? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Normal particle emmitter on the mesh, and I've tried to combine the partice system with a 'smoke flow' but to no avail. $\endgroup$ Jul 26 '17 at 12:47
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @cegaton for the link - some beautiful animations referenced there, and I have a lot to work on now $\endgroup$ Jul 26 '17 at 13:13
