Ella, I even found a tutorial by Gimper, but it wasn't about animated snow.
Over here, a subtropical region, the climate never reaches the conditions that could produce snow. Perhaps at the top of some mountains, it would still be more of a frost than snow itself.
Dinasset and Pat, I believe you have defined the situation well. But using the Animated Snow plugin I did not get good results.
I tried to change the speed, but I didn't find any good adjustments.
Fortunately yesterday I managed to use the Falling Snow or Other Brush plugin, and even with the standard sets I got something more satisfying.
Wow, well done, Krikor
This is more like real, when it snows thick flakes.
It really gives a magical feeling standing in the silence between all those soft flakes whirling down.
An (animated) image, a film ... it gives an impression. Can never replace the real thing.
Like I only can imagine what it must be like, to live in a subtropical climate.
