It is a chocolate moving , And i want to use realflow to make some drop chocolate on my model.

model done with particle emit a lot of sphere follow a spline and group with metaball

now my problem is I cant export exact model like this to realflow , I can only export cloner with sphere animation.

I want model that group with metaball to realflow for real collision with animation.

any idea or some suggestion ?

Well, if you are already planning to do an animation with liquid chocolate, why not using RealFlow also for that part of the animation (without metaball in cinema) ?

I don't think it is possible to export metaball objects from cinema4D to RealFlow. Deforming objects can be exported, but a metaball changes points over time and is basically a fresh new object in each frame.
The C4D file is so big because you cached the metaball animation inside, but that does not help with sd-export.
