You know whats incredibly hard to do in 3D? Dust clouds. Three hundred thousand polygons and it still looks like a breezy day at the beach.

So real you model each individual dust particle?

Well, model ONE dust particle then tell the program to apply some random variations and copy it three bajillion times. Because this isn't animated I thought I could get away with faking it but the results lack any kind of substance and volume, which is annoying because the faking method is called "Volumetric".
