Newbie Help

Postby bhavya2 » Wed May 30, 2012 5:43 pm

I have just started using realflow 5...
i am working on a project in which the requirement of the shot is this:
still swimming pool water..a charater jumps creating a big splash
so how do i go ahead with it..
seeing some videos on the net..i am getting some idea...like maybe use Realwave..
but how to i make the swimming pool geometery contain realwave ..

also can hybrido be used in this situation.. like maybe calm the fluids to rest position then throw in the character animation ..so i'll get autoamatic splashes and stuff...
please any help would be deeply appreciated
thanks

Hi.

how to i make the swimming pool geometery contain realwave


All you'd do is essentially resize the realwave to fit the area of the pool.

I personally wouldn't use realwave for this..... but you can.

Using hybrido or standard particles would work well for this. For the majority of things I do I still use standard particles but of course, hybrido has its advantages over standard particles.

Realwave is a bit easier to handle, Hybrido offers more options but is more complex to set up. Try your stuff and as again, when you get stuck. It was also very much appreciated, if you described your interest in the topic, instead of being very general and just post "help".
