In this series of lessons we will learn the process of creating a scene with a fire tornado. We are not talk only about the process of simulation. But also about creating the environment for a scene using simple static images in Nuke. Will learn a lot of different techniques to create puddles, image correction, and the projection geometry. Much time we spent creating additional elements of the environment in 3Ds max like debris and dust. And create a scene from scratch to the final view.
