Video: What happened to the Hindenburg?


Jared Owen writes:

I've always wanted to make an animation about the Hindenburg. Airships are fascinating to me! There's more details I would have loved to include but the video was already approaching 10 minutes so at some point I had to call it good.
Animating the flames during the crash scene took the longest. I had to fiddle with the settings for a long time! This time I learned that subtle changes to the cycles node tree goes a long way to improving how the flames look. Hopefully someday the smoke sim will see significant improvements from what we currently have. For now I'll make it work!
