It finally happened – our dear friend Simon Fiedler agreed to record a guest tutorial for us. He decided to share one of his production tricks for controlling particles: Building a swirly vector field to advect particles. Although it looks organic and natural, it’s highly controllable using a few basic vector math hacks. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the great tutorial. I just cannot see the fog volume of the vdb activate no matter what I do. I cannot see it in your project file neither. However, the system works. Can we fix this ?
