A QUICK WORD ABOUT THE PROJECT FILES

The scene files (compatible with Max 2016 and higher) for all shown effects are included with the course. I had to exclude the 3D models per their license requirements, but all you have to do is import your own 3D model and hit "Start Simulation" and get a finished effect.

"Jesse teaches how to create liquid and smoke simulations in ways I didn’t think was possible. And for a beginner like me they were so easy to follow. I could start implementing what I learned in my work immediately and was able to wow my friends and take client work to that next level like I wanted to. "
