I'm Having SUCH Fun . . . Not!

Posted by Non-Hamster on July 3rd, 2010

For the last week or so I have been, unsuccessfully, been trying to come up with a way to use Blender to produce the "kawoosh" effect used in Stargate SG-1 when the stargate opens a wormhole.  I won't say it's got me tearing my hair out but if things keep going the way they have been I'm going to need a cure for hair loss.

Since I haven't had any success trying to make an animated model of it directly, I have been trying to do a virtual version of the way the effect was done in the movie.  I'm trying to make a large virtual tank of water and then have it react to a strong jet of air (wind) being blasted into it from above.

So far all I have been able to do is create large blocks of water that, when animated, fall and splash spectacularly into a container.  I have not yet figured out how to get it to react in ANY way to the wind element that I put into it.

Efforts continue but this is getting really frustrating.
