Best Foam settings for a HY river? Suggestions?

Hi all long river very long big sim, rapid moving water, not too many obstacles. So far I have been trying: 100,000 emission 45 to 90 degree angle threshold 2 speed threshold 1.0 stringyness and 30 min life and 30 max life maybe this is too many seconds long or is it frames? so far the river looks l...

Foam texture cache? and maps? how to use?

I have FTC files but not maps saved, do i have to re-sim to make the Tif files?

are these maps then applied to the core VDB hybrido mesh? are they camera dependent?

what is best workflow for these files going to 3dsmax?


Thanks!

Re: Hybrido export do i need RPC and VDB? both?

sorry managed to spread this over two thread topics. but

looks like VDB compressed works better? seems to be more stable ? why would this be.

Re: Hybrido export do i need RPC and VDB? both?

thanks can i create splash and foam from emitter if i leave out VDB export from main sim. VDB export is crashing out sim. Sorry kind of double post but slightly different topic in a way.

edit can i drop out solid velocity, solid distance or any of these something is crashing the save of VBD

Re: Realflow Hybrido - Large Sim Crash out - Panick time?

Update Thanks for help. I have a nice long week into this sim again. with no crashes. Now made initial state. I had not saved saved out VDB. But it seems will need that for foam correct? When I reset to initial state and begin the sim with VDB and RPC checked it is crashing again. Can this be done s...

Re: Realflow Hybrido - Large Sim Crash out - Panick time?

30m Particle couple days in now, 20 min a frame

no crashes that drag force may have done the trick. is it better than limit and keep? Thanks for help

Re: Realflow Hybrido - Large Sim Crash out - Panick time?

trying again with fresh scene, 30k poly for collision object (riverbed)

also a long fill object to kind of prefil the river bed

steps 1 min 150 max general
steps 1 min 1 max Hybrido

and Dragforce Deamon .1 per your suggestion.

25 million so far

Re: Hybrido export do i need RPC and VDB? both?

is it possible to sim up to a certain point saving only RPC, to make initial state and then do the sim with writing a RPC and VDB for splashes?

Re: Realflow Hybrido - Large Sim Crash out - Panick time?

HI thanks I tried 100fps even. using 60fps right now, it seemed to help for a while, no error message in command line window. not much experimentation with drag daemon will try, the particles are for sure moving pretty fast especially around the corners. I just made the scene from scratch again just...

Re: The river rhone

interesting that this thread would just come up as I am battling same stuff how about a river that is more whitewater and turbulant that the river Rhone? can it be done in Realwave too? a custom Real Wave object for the river floor would be hard to make, it would have to drop over things and wrap ar...
