In this series of CryENGINE tutorials, we will learn the fundamentals to creating awesome particle effects in CryEngine. We'll start off by learning the fundamental workflow for creating any particle system by creating a simple fire.
After that we'll continue learning about the Particles Editor by creating a fire that's a little more realistic. Now while creating this realistic fire effect, We'll learn how to generate sparks, create billowing smoke and then we'll top off our realistic fire by adding the heat haze.
Once we're finished with the fire we'll learn how to create the different elements we need to create a waterfall, like water spray, mist, and foam. Then to finish off the tutorial, we'll learn how to create a complex explosion, which will be really fun. Let's get started!
