Vikrant Dalai explains how to make a fireball with a smoke trail for use in your sci-fi film, war movie, video game or Pompeii recreation documentary.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how I created this fireball with the help of 3ds Max and the FumeFX Plugin. There are different types of techniques we can use to make this effect in FumeFX – e.g. Simple Sources, Object Sources, Particle Sources, etc. But this time we will use a Simple Source. And for this purpose we are going to use three different Simple Sources, some standard lights (Target Spot & Omni), and the default Scanline Renderer.
