Need to create liquid metal (mercury). The obvious chioice would be CC mercury Plug, but does not work 3D and i have to match a camera rotation. Had a little attempt in cinema 4D but my 3D skills are not up to much. Any ideas would be very greatful
If it really needs to be 3D, a 3D program or dedicated fluid sim tools such as Realflow are inevitable. For some 2.5D effect, use whatever particle system you deem suitable, blur the output, then use sharpening, contrast adjustments etc. to get blobs and aplly Alpha Bevel and CC Vector Blur. Should give some interesting results.
