#GCI504 Experimenting with Dynamic Effects

In the process of experimenting with Autodesk Maya I have learned the basics of how to create range of dynamic effects with the phoenixFD plugin during the CGI504 class.

From regular explosions to effects following a set path and liquid emitting from a moving source it has been fun to be able to play with these and learn how the controls for these effects work.

The flame following the set path was the most challenging for me but with some help I was able to understand how to get the desired outcome from the exercise.

I also had a lot of fun with the paint simulation preset and key framing movement into the source object.
