Please check out the DFect 09 Reel - Does anyone have any idea how he got the liquid ink look at the beginning? I highly doubt it is an actual shot. I would guess it was out of a 3D package or a plugin in AE. But what plugin gets it that clean? Hope someone here has some ideas. Thanks.

I think your first guess is correct - that it was created and rendered in a 3d app. I'm gonna guess RealFlow.

without realflow, try a 3d app a particle system (or two) and metaballs. and of course you'll need to set up the lighting, material and possibly some physics.

without a 3d app, ae, mr. mercury and several layers. it wouldn't look as realistic, but you might get some passable, quick-and-dirty results...
