Is the a way to change Explosia’s direction/orientation or is locked to the laws of physics? There are effects that look like I want, but only if rendered image the default vertical orientation . I want to use the effect on a spaceship rear engine nozzle. I used wind and an attractor which did change the direction horizontally, but lost the cool effect when using it vertically. I direction modifier, but that only changed particles, not explosia.
you can do a couple of tings,
1: make sure the simulation has zero Buoyancy and then use modifiers to push the fluids.
2: use particles as the source and have full direction control, increasing the velocity to make it push the fluids harder.
Thanks Mike! I also figured out that I can simulate it vertically, then cahe it, then rotate the Redshift Volume object. This is really cool software. I’ve been playing with putting the emitter in tube and placing a sphere in it to force out like the diameter of the nozzle. It’s like doing stuff in real life!
