Chocolate Whirlpool Effect

Postby sinarhp » Sat Mar 23, 2013 12:03 am

Hi everyone!
This is my first post on this forum,

I am trying to create a chocolate whirlpool effect (something similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL2qu8tOU5g) in Realflow.
I was wondering what is the best way to achieve this effect? I have tried using multiple emitters
emitting particles on a steep round surface but as I said I`m not sure if that is the best way.

I would appreciate any helps.

Thanks

Sina

Never tried this, but I think you could have a container filled with particles, having a hole in the bottom so they can drain out. To simulate the Coriolis effect, user a Vortex demon, which will make the particles spin around the center as they drain out.

Good luck,

I'm not sure too,
use a simple swirl map into a displace channel et voila...if you are a max user, free Blur tools contain a "better" swirl map.

looking into that vid. i think it might not even be simulated. i think it can be done with deformers in Max.

but you can still try simulating it. would be cool.
