Is there an easy way to make particles look like foam? I created a fire extinguisher and I need to animate it to spray foam on a flame. Any help, suggestions etc. The emitter works great but I just need to learn how to make the particles look right. Thanks.

My first instinct would be hypervoxels in surface setting, so you get nice metablobbing. But to make it it look like real foam... Maybe two emitters? One for a nice massy glob and a second for finer bubbles? Maybe someone else knows a better answer... :stumped:

yes I've heard that using an HV emitter is better but the manual that comes with LW is so terrible I can't figure out what to do. Sorry Newtek but you really need to write a better book.
