Okay here's what I'm really needing help with. I've been playing around with a few of the dust storm like presets but I can't seem to get any of them to do what I'm wanting them to do.

Can some one please help me out!

I'm trying for what I think would be three different presets.

1. Dust coming from the ground up to the sky. (constantley)

2. Dust blowing across the screen at a fast rate. (from left to right)

3. A large vortex/tornado. (I downloaded the small preset tornado wasn't quit big enough)

I know it's asking for a lot I've read the manual I've fooled with the presets I LOVE this program but I need help with these couple of things it would really help my movie out.

Big thanks to FXHOME for making the program if someone could help out with these couple of presets I would greatley appreciate it!

Those all seem do-able, I'll try work something up. Might not be right away though.

I'm not sure what exactly the dust going up would be for, a bit more explanation would help, as far as figuring out the right speed and such for the dust.

Thanks Axeman would really appreciate it.

The dust blowing upward effect is actually for a scene where a guy is landing on the ground from jumping off a cliff and a whole bunch of dust kicks up to the point where you realy can't see him.

BIG THANKS!
