This is what I’m trying to make, some cartoon smoke.

It’s made up of a tracer, helix, cloner, volume builder. Every combination I try, I can’t even get close to the example
in the tweet.


Has anyone had any luck making something like this?

Hi joshua.howard,

There are several options. Here is a small little rig to showcase what could be done.

Example

The key is here in the PoseMorph

All the best

You’re very welcome, joshua.howard.

Splines are certainly the simplest way, like this example

With other tools, you get different results, and I used splines here only to fill the base
