just thought I would post...........playing with ABhttp://www.3dglove.com/3dglove/09/TAKE_1.mov
hmm... I think the puffs should be bigger... and also, you should stick a "bigger smoke" to the airplane, and parts of the ship should have much smaller amount of smoke (just my opinion, maybe I am wrong).
The airplane needs better animation. He rotates down too fast, and if we agreed that the Airplane is very heavy acctualy, he should move slower.
Keep it up and post the progress... I am very interested to see it.
