SlipstreamVX is an awesome tool. Here are a couple of tests. Almost no time spent to set these up, Slipstream is very fast and intuitive to use.
The first shot is a Fury render in conjunction with my RTlight compound, to see how they look together.
The second shot is a screen capture plus some post glow, to get a feel for how fast I could put together a reasonable fire effect (minutes, it turns out.) I used an excess of particles because I was also getting a feel for how slipstream does under stress. Both Slipstream and the Fury renderer are startlingly fast.
