This first test is Fury
20 million nParticles
motion blur switched ON
4 x multisampling
I'm showing the alpha channel only because I currently just have the demo version of Fury and the watermark is distracting in the colour channel.
The next test is Krakatoa
It's slightly trickier to get started with Krakatoa, but I think the results look amazing. Again, this is a lot of particles (14 million)
Here is my setup for Arnold, but I cannot seem to get the opacity to work properly.
I have finally got this working. Please see my later post "passing ageNormalized to Arnold"
