smoke density selection

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-10-06T06:17:57+02:00

for this animation I used a smoke sim and a volume material. The material only selects part of the density values using a color-ramp node. The smoke has no temperature difference but is moved by a turbulence force-field

particle smoke spiral

for this animation I experimented with a particle density texture and two different volume materials

For this animation I used a volumentric material to simulate dust in the light cone of a spotlight

volume explode

for this animation I used the cell fracture addon to break a sphere and made the shards block the light paths of a point light inside a volume scatter shader

point-density node experiment

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-09-09T06:26:28+02:00

For this animation I used the gooseberry-branch of blender 2.75. I made a volumetric material using the point-density texture node to create a cloud and added some red point lamps to a second particle sytem from the same emitter.

If you want to run this blend file make sure you use the gooseberry branch of blender 2.75 - the point-density texture node isn't available in the stable branch yet
