Hi helpfull people,

I don't know if there is already a question like this one, but a I have a question about ink that transforms into text like this.

My question: how it is made, I mean the effect, from ink to text, can it be done with fume fx in 3d max, or is it possible to make it with after effects?

The best way to do this is to drop ink in a very big tank of water, and shoot through the side.

It takes work. It's not automatic. You have to do it many times. But how do you think the people in the movies get ink to move through water convincingly?

Hi Dave,

I know how to make ink drops, but i was wondering how I can make the effect from ink to text, the kind of transformation between ink and text.

I'm making the ink drops with fumefx btw.

Thanks for the answer by the way.

I suspect that was done w/Houdini.
