How to Make a Simulation-Free Tornado Effect in Blender

Bad Normals shows how to make a tornado using math nodes in Blender rather than a simulation.

You’d think that effects like fire, smoke, and a grand tornado would need some amount of simulations to complete. But this new tutorial from  Bad Normals shows how you can make a rather nice-looking tornado effect using math nodes in Blender instead.

Bad Normals often makes really cool-looking effects in Blender and then shows us how.
