New Here, Have Question Re: Effects

Post by BriansJet » Tue Jun 26, 2012 12:22 am

Hello Everyone,

I hope you don't mind me coming on board here with a question straight away. Presently am working on a fighter aircraft and cleaning up some of the loose ends, one being an effect which I would like to create. This would entail having a condensation cloud appear around the top of the wings/fuselage at a certain G-level. Using FSX and with the effects editor, it's easy to see effects as they are being adjusted; problem here being, every effect I have tried resembles a ball in shape, and don't seem to respond to tweaks to get it to trail behind the aircraft by changing drag settings, for example. Am looking to hopefully create a flattened cloud that sort of follows the edge of the wing, or something similar, if possible. I've seen some of the work created from really talented individuals here (including afterburner effects, etc.) and figured this might be the place to check first with any questions. Many thanks, if anyone is interested a pic of the aircraft can be posted (it's my own design concept). Many thanks.

Brian

Post up your effects file, or send it to me in a PM.

Chances are it is either your fx???.bmp your using, or the blend.
