In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a fire effect using Bifrost Aero in Maya, we will see how to create a flame simulation, using Maya’s Bifrost nodal system and Aero solver, tutorial made by the 3D artist Reza Sarkamari, Maya Certified Professional.
How to create a ball Fire effect using Bifröst Aero in Maya?
In this tutorial, we will see how to use the Bifrost particle system from scratch to create a flame explosion in Maya. In the tutorial, we will use an input geometry, and its conversion into Air volume, going to do the dynamics set-up to ignite the flame.
Furthermore, we will see how to use the influence compound to apply the force field and direct the simulation aspect. Finally, we assign a material to our effect using the Hypershadewindow, and finally, we explain the caching process to write our simulation to physical files.
