I was told recently to refer a few videos to enhance my learning experience with blender…and I stumbled over these YouTube Videos.. I actually came over loads, and these 2 kinda seem to condense my work so yeah… watch and enjoy maybe ?
What have I done?
Using this train as my model, I made a track (using the array and curve modifier) . After making the smoke particles to float in the positive z-axis (since it took me a moment there to realize that I was modelling the world upside down…Apparently I lost the orientation while applying my Follow path modifier to the train)… I tried new light settings?
And this is what I ended up with … overlooking that one time that I deleted the blender file after modelling everything cause the train wasn’t moving properly over the track (I am still annoyed with that sadistic habit of mine… *sigh) I started again from scratch and It took me around an hour to make the train smoke and move logically (If I can say so myself ) on a not so straight track …
