Hello. I am searching a way to create something like this (first, WIND) image:
I have seen here in this forum some works with similar characteristics. I need to generate a lot of lines or traces or strands that look like hair in wind or water and interacting somehow with some (invisible) object (probably a geometrical figure not a word). Is this complicate to do? I have some experiences using nodes in Blender 3D, but this is different for me.

    I don't think NB3 is the best tool for this, maybe nodebox1... but as you mentioned Blender, its internal render engine can trace particles as lines, see quick example here: and a pic:
