hey everybody I'm new to realflow so this is probably a silly question

okay so i need to simulate a fluid in realflow using animations from 3dsmax, the frame started at 4000 untill 4200 so i export an SD file to realflow and simulate the fluid. Then, I export the mesh in .bin format. when I try to load it in 3dsmax, the fluid appeared from 0 to 200, is there any way to shift the fluid animation from 0-200 to 4000-4200...

PS : I tried shifting the objects and camera animation from 4000 to 0 but somehow they behave differently when i moved it so i figure shifting the fluid is a better idea

Hey,

One way to do it is to cheat and simply re-name your BIN files. There's a cool utility that makes this easy...

I use it all the time and it works really well.

Good Luck,

okay it is a silly question, there is a tab in the rfmeshloader modifier and it sets the frame options, I set it to start at 4000 and all is well :lol: :lol: :lol:
