Big Smoke Effect

Post your own tutorials, guides and demos.

Post » Fri Jul 18, 2008 8:17 pm

Here's a simple but pretty cool looking window-filling smoke effect which uses two large sprites and a gradient blended together and animated using offset to scroll the smoke and warp create waves in the clouds. I'm looking at possibilities to shrink this and use it for an in-game effect.

Smoke on the Water!

Here's a similar effect, but for a firey looking effect this time. firey.zip

I just realised, maybe you weren't seeing the effect as intended. What kind of effect did everyone else see? The one I intended was definitely smoky looking, but if the framerate mode isn't on V-sync the effect goes kinda weird. If it's on Unlimited, it just looks like a rippling gradient thing, more like water than smoke.

It looks more smokey than watery to me. It doesn't billow like smoke, but then again it doesn't wave or ripple like water either.

It's still a really cool looking effect regardless.
