VFX: Tornado

Twister: A Styrofoam Tragedy

I had a lot of fun putting this silly project together. I used Maya fluids for the tornado then composited it into the scene with After Effects. Each one of these projects is a learning experience, and the biggest thing I took away from this was how to render Fluids faster. The render time for the tornado here was about 11 seconds a frame, so about 2-3 hours to render the entire sequence. However with the new technique I've learned since then, I can get that render time down to about 5-10 minutes.
