A Very Early Stage of Lightning Bolt with nParticles. I have been trying to follow this Blog :
sigillarium.com/blog/lang/en/228/ for the uniform particle trail. I am emitting 4 different particles system followed with a noise expression each assigned a different Nucleus solve. I am giving a shot with Nparticles instead of PFX because I can have nice control on the noise pattern & Ghosting effect ( Fading the branches randomly which is bit tricky to do with pfx ). Also Quite not happy with PFX turbulent noise..but it in some cases one can get away very well with pfx noise. Doing it with particles is just a personal challenge for me. I will share this soon on Cgtalk for more inputs & Feedback,
