Fluids flowing through a space?!
on Jan 10, 2006 at 11:37:10 pm

I wish to create the effect of various fluids flowing through a space. The Space is an interior recorded via video. The closest thing that I can think of is the scene in Steven King's " The Shining " where the blood flows through the corridor. I am not fussed on a realistic watery effect and would settle for a morphing fliud effect, something that is glossy like wet paint. I am a complete novice, I am from a fine art background, but am keen to learn how to create fluids. I am also reminded a little of terminator 2 here. Please help?!!

Maya Fluids are not based on compressible fluids. This is why you can not simulate properly pouring a non compressible (H20) fluids through into a glass (compressible).

For this you need to use a plugin like Glu3D (Cheaper) or Realflow (the film industry standard I believe).

Also you need a firm grounding in Maya before you tackle things like fluids.

Thank you, I have real flow, do you think that I will find it easier to learn this problem in another 3d app such as lightwave or cinema 4d?
