Larry has done a lot of training over the years but we have never seen him do anything on Snow or Fog. So, we thought, why not!

In this class Larry will take some tips, tricks and what ever else he has up those sleeves to show you how he created some snow visual effects for Television channels like Discovery and Animal Planet.

Any chance of reviewing the HV Deformer? I ask because its the most "hazy" area. I've done some neat things in regards to viscous | fluidly effects, but can't predict anything at all. So it would be nice to understand how that works.

Ive tried using HVDeformer but IMO its a horrible hack. Basically all it does is allow HVs to deform perpendicular to a surface so if you have enough of them they appear to assume the shape of the surface theyre up against. Its very difficult to use IMO and its also incredibly slow....slow enough where Id never use it even if it was easy to use.
On top of that we just havent seem much interest at all on that topic.

HV deform is a joke. I saw someone get it to work for a still render only of sweat on a soda can. But I can not imagine it working for practical animation.
