View Full Version : whatever happened to steamer

04-09-2014, 07:30 PM

I used to use steamer, it was really great for puffs of smoke.
I even used it in an indie short film and was able to custom create smoke on a per shot basis.

after some early version of lightwave it was replaced with the hypervoxals, i could not get the great looking smoke i was getting with steamer anymore, i was really dissappointed.

Does any one know why it was replaced, and not supported anymore?

What would it take to bring that back? NewteK?

true, you can't get that smoke with hypervoxels, it's been requested before, but with no success...

however, there is an alternative if you run 32bit LightWave, Ogo Taiki >
