Im probubly not going to try this till after i know more about lightwave but how would u make fog. I recently did that mansion hall tutorial and i was wondering wut it would look like if it was dark and had fog hovering about a foot over the floor. Is it a bunch of particals?
thanks

If the fog must float off the ground, there are a couple of ways.
Volumetrics,
Motion blurred transparent polys with fractal texture,
or the old wavefilter voulemtrics plugin.
If it's for a still, you could even get away with a single poly with a fractal transparency.

The best way imo is too compose the fog in a video editing program like after effects or DFX

I guess that depends on if you want true volumetrics. Though only just having got DFX+ - suffice to say I am a tad new to compositing so I have no idea if that can be effectively faked :D
