8.5 Million Particle Meshing Problem

I've been working on high resolution fluid simulations. For this particular sim, there were a lot of meshing problems once the particle count got too high.
Here is a link to the video: http://youtu.be/RolbMDrDF60?hd=1

Is there anyway to prevent the mesh from those defects?

Thanks

I've never seen a problem like this. At first I couldn't see the problem. I could only see what I thought were codec issues. Then realised they were errors in the mesh itself.

Can you post a few images of the frames with the problem? Saves trying to pause Youtube.

Each of the defects seem to be in straight lines which is strange.

In Rf, on a frame with a screwed up mesh, if you right click on the mesh node and press build, does it build correctly or the same way?

Did you use hybrido (with hybrido mesher) for this sim or standard particles?

If you try to rebuild the mesh, the same defect will happen. If you look at the particles for that frame, no defect is visible. The only way I've been able to get rid of them is to rerun the simulation for that frame and build the mesh using the new particles. But clearly this isn't a practical way since there are way to many frames to fix.

To answer your other question, this was simulated using hybrido.

Are you using any smooth value on the RKmesh?

Hi,

What RealFlow version are you exactly using?
This was supposed to be solved a while back, I believe even in the last RF5 patch.

I think the mesh had a smooth value of about 40.
As far as I know, I haven't installed any patches to RF since I got it, so it should be version 5.0. It could be that it got patched a long time ago and I never bothered to update RF.
