Adjusting the wind settings for realistic smoke movement

Now that we have both the Wind and Drag space warps affecting our particles, we can now go back to our Wind controls and make a few additional adjustments to bring out a little more realism in the movement of our Smoke particles. I'll do that using a file named Project Smoke03, which is a carryover from our last video. Now, to see the effect of each space warp that's been bound to our Super Spray, let's turn off the light bulbs one at a time that are to the left of each entry in the Super Spray's Modifier stack. Again, the particles are simply shooting straight up with no resistance whatsoever until the Wind opens, then blows them to the left.

Let's turn that back on and instead turn off the Wind. This time around we'll see the particles again being dragged down but not being affected by any wind force. So you can see both space warps are indeed vital to the overall look of our effect. Okay, why don't we stop that then change a few things around on our Wind sp...
