Hi all,

I am trying to create cigarette smoke in a windy environment, more like the one in the reference video.

I have added a custom wind field.But the smoke isn't moving that well.Coudn't maitain the wind speed till the end.I want the smoke to move across with constant speed all along.
They tend to slow down after a while(please watch the wip video).Can someone help me out on this.
Please find the attached hip file.

Thanks in Advance.

I took out velocity from the velocity field parameter in your bindings tab of gasturbulance node.

Also zeroed out your y axis fields of the gravity Force parameters.

Probably other things you can do that might be a better approach/solution.

You might find this an interesting and usefull read too to getter a more desireable smoke for cigarettes:
