From a real life reference, I've developed the effect of a tank firing. There are 2 distinct simulations, one of them is the muzzle flash and the other is the smoke that it leaves. The smoke has been parameterized in such a manner that tries to resemble how it works in a realistic setting based on the reference, including the direction of the wind.
The muzzle flash effect was created based on a real life reference, and it's measurements are realistic and the result is pretty close to the original
*The effect is compatible with Houdini 18.5.499 and tested with Houdini 18.0 but, it has some bugs and diferences with the simulation.
*The files contain:
- Original file .hip
- Render Files
- Original reference and Render in .mp4 format.
The tank model is also not included as it wasn't made by me.I'm available for any questions.
