Description

Throughout these lessons, we will create a holographic display using ICE particles in Softimage. Using ICE, we will create an explosion of particles while learning about some of the nodes used in the process. In order to create smoke using FumeFX, we will cache our simulation into files, export the scene out of Softimage and then import it into 3ds Max. By the end of this training you will be able to use these tools and techniques in your visual effects projects. Software required: Softimage 2013, 3ds Max 2013, FumeFX 3.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Francis St-Denis, and I am currently an FX artist at Vision Globale. In this course we are going to learn how to create a big bang effect using Softimage and 3ds Max. First, we will manipulate ice particle in order to produce a turbulent explosion with the help of states. We will then cache our creation and export it to 3ds Max to generate some with FumeFX. By the end of this training you will be able to create ice particle explosion, and use this data to easily generate smoke in FumeFX. I'm really excited to work with Digital-Tutors and to share these techniques. Sign in or sign up now and let's get started.
