Brown out effect
« on: January 12, 2012, 09:57:50 PM »
Hi chaps,

A forum member, on another forum I`m afraid, wants to make a diorama of a Wokka landing, kicking up loads of dust in a desert (the dust would ideally engulf most of the chinook).

Any suggestions or tips would be great.

hmmm the first thing I can think of is having the rear wheels touching as the helicopter "flares" in for the landing. the Second is to actually suspend the helicopter in the air, and use whatever water sculpt painted brown and have it holding onto the rotor blades really subtlety

Further to my last suggestion, may I suggest you look at this:   Making the Dust Clouds
