I was surprised when i went through the presets to find that there are no smoking barrel presets, during and after smoke blowouting of a gun, and bullet hits to the wall or object smoke presets. So i was wondering if any one could make one or two, or has few already.
The look i was GOING for:
If you have seen Double Barrel revamped with the stock footage i was thinking anything like that might be cool.
Or if you have any of ur own ideas go with it.
ALSO maybe using the muzzle flash tool instead of partical just so you can get diffrent angels out the smoke so ur not confined to one gun angle. BUT WHAT EVER you think works

Thanks for reading

Here's an idea......take the cigarette smoke exhale, and cut it shorter from the time in shoots out of the particle emitter point, then cut it where you want it to stop. I made my version but I don't know if I will submit it because it's just a modified version of the cigarette smoke exhale.

All the best,
Ryan

Hey irishcult.

For Double Barrel we used sollthars smoke pack and i must say one thing... the pack is AWESOME. Its a must buy! Sollthar is releasing some new smoke stock footage like the ones in the newest "Nightcast" trailers. But if u like the stock footage I used. Buy it... Its a must buy and for VERY cheap.

I totally would if all my money right now wasnt goin towards insurance, gas, car payments, and other living expences but i see Oeyvind made both a gun smoke preset and a bullet hit preset which are both PRettY cool. Both i think are a must have preset. BUT SOME DAY i will buy Sollthars pack. SOME DAY
