It is annoyingly foggy today, the sun is doing it’s best to burn the mist away but is just too far south of the equator to manage the job.
My 3D fireworks have all the impact and sparkle of a damp squib. I have got lovely trails of sparks and smoke, the explosion needs some more work but it’s all at the particle stage. I am determined to master the Node compositor malarkey but keep getting lost and then can’t find the damn particle system I want again when I need to increase or decrease size, randomness or whatever. It’s very hard to imagine what something will look like until you give it light emission. I’m going to read a book for a bit. Then I’ll have another go. I think I’ll start again and name everything and write down what I’ve called stuff. I still have a couple of days to produce something worth seeing.
Here are a couple of views from earlier today. The mist wasn’t as thick then but it was coolish on my fingers.
Dithery has not invited me to his hog roast on Bonfire Night, perhaps he has decided against one this year.
