Heatwave / distortion / Shimmer 
By groover on May 31, 2001 01:00 PM
Hey,

I'm trying to add a distortion above the exhaust tubes as if a lot of heat was coming out.... any ideas?

I've tried:
A Cylinder wth noise added,  falloff transparancy, & raytraced refraction

Oh - this is in Max4

I heard this same queston b4 i actually think there's a tutorial over at 3dcafe.com.

I would animate a clothmesh doing a wave effect with almost transparent glass refraction material.(and opacity map for the edges)

When you say a clothmesh, what do you mean? Like just a grid bound to a ripple, or some kind of plugin?
I'll check out 3d Cafe too

Thanx!!
