Overview of using a particle emitter to create flowing geometry, relying on the metaball. A fun technique that can be used for stylized smoke, liquid or organic forms. In this tutorial Michael will show you how to create this simulation set-up.

Then you’ll learn how to shape your simulation using forces like wind and gravity. Finally you’ll learn about fields (falloffs) to shape and fine-tune your simulation.

You’ll also see a quick overview of how Michael composited the smoke/liquid layer into a 2D animation using Photoshop and After Effects.

A fun technique you can follow along with.
