Hello, and welcome back after a (too) long break! I’m hoping to be releasing tutorials on a more regular basis again!

In this tutorial, we’ll go over creating an easy to make Frosted Glass material. We’ll also go over creating a fast and easy smoke simulation to add to the effect. We’ll then finish off by compositing everything together to get our finished animation.

Once you’re finished, go check out some more tutorials on the site!

Happy Blending!

PS. Post your finished results in the comments below once you’re finished, I’d love to see what you all create!
