In this Maya tutorial, we will learn how to create fire and smoke with Maya 3D Fluids - Fire and Smoke. To make our effect more powerful and realistic we will first understand the science behind these complex fluids and then separately create them in Maya. After this, we will advance to understanding the behavior of fire with smoke and then blend them in Maya.

We will be learning several different techniques to produce and control the behavior of fluids by creating fluids from geometry and particles system. We will influence fluids with different fields to create believable effects. We will learn simple techniques to tackle complex effects for easy understanding and learning. At the end of this Maya training course you will be ready to burn out anything with Maya.
