Jelly and other flexible stuff

I have noticed the flickering as well. Liquid emitters don't show that with similar settings... but maybe increasing density or speed daemon would help.

Let s get started

I just saw today, that nextlimit opened a forum of their own for scripting (and only for scripting). http://www.nextlimit.com/phpBB2/ It surprised me a little bit, that it is planned at NL to separate the scripting from other aspects of the software such as the user interface, installation, renderin...

Bubbles?

The bubble-emitter should produce meshes. In the 3D-app you can apply afterwards a silver material with transparence and reflection. You can use a surface tension daemon set at for example 150 and at the emitters setting a higher external than internal pressure to make them look blobby. In the mesh ...

Bubbles?

Yes, that's it. Use one emitter simple to produce the resistance of the water and the bubble-emitter gets the meshes which will be rendered later.

Review of RealFlow4 in the 3D World magazine

Hi ! today arrived the latest issue of the British magazine "3D World" and it has a brief review of RealFlow4. These reviews are usually rather short, one page minus pictures. It is a very positive review overall. The update of Maya 8 received in the same issue only an overall rating of 7. Anyway, I...

Jelly and other flexible stuff

Ok, thanks for the clarification :) So I found a slightly older version, but I changed the settings to have something similar as in the movie shown before. The output of this project looks like this in my hands: http://www.cardiomyocytes.com/movies/new_gelee_stretch_s.mov The project files as zip (w...

Drop on a surface

Hi !

I have tried this method several times, but I was never satisfied with the shape of the "crown"-splash.
Often, the entire lower liquid was rising into the air, not only the surface, might be a problem of scale as well ? How many particles do you use for the liquids ?

Jelly and other flexible stuff

I have to dig deep in my harddisc, since this is an older project. But if I find it I will post a zip-archive of the project on the server tomorrow.

Flames

In the first picture I used the liquid emitter type, but in the second one (movie) the gasous emitter type. To put a mesh around a gas might work with flames. Flames can be visualized with a geometric shape. Pure gases like fog, smoke, dust work differently and I think the way of the mesh is not the...
