Hi all,
I think this is my first post and im kind of a noob with particles and HVs. I need to create black inward tumbling cloud. Sort of like its being sucked into itself. What its supposed to be is when someone dies a black cloud comes out of their chest when the character pulls out their death.
I tried a few presets but I cant figure out how to get the HVs to blend together so they dont look like a bunch of little fireballs or clouds but part of a one big one. The Kirby effect post had some really nice looks and I would like to know how you guys got it to look so fluid.
Im on win 8.5
Thank you for your help.

You need to raise the size, and use sprites.

You might want to give Dynamite a try. There's a couple of simple tutorials on their site.

Hey that looks promising. I see what you mean about sizing them up to blend. I thought it was a setting in the textures that I just couldnt find. These are like metaballs i guess.
