To easily create fast rendering steam effects in Trapcode Particular, use the Cloudlet particle at a large size, with the Opacity Over Life fading up and down, and the overall opacity at a low setting.

For added realism, use the Fluid Physics Model, to simulate how smoke swirls and evolves in real life

TIP: Use the GPU acceleration in Particular to speed up processing, and to get real-time particle playback in the Designer
