This is a video with multiple simulations and experiments with the Blender smoke simulator. I really love Blender's smoke simulator, it is flexible, diverse and pretty fast in some cases.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)

    Great results! My favorite is the case where "something" quickly flies through the smoke making diagonal moves mostly. And it contains the light. So it looks terrific! Great idea.

  2. they are all fairly horrible... glitches... artefacts, sure he probably did this all on one machine.. but put the smoke resolution up a bit, render settings up a bit, increase the domain size so we dont see the box.
