RealFlow pack

Collection of video tutorials on creating dynamics and fluid simulation. Release date: November 8, 2017.

Fluid simulation is a special section of visual effects. The simulation process has a large number of features.

The liquid has a number of properties that are not presented in other systems. And we have a deal with density, viscosity, pressure and even surface tension. All this greatly affects on the result. And if you also take into account the different scale of the simulations — from drops of dew on the leaf to the giant tsunami, it becomes clear — why it is so difficult to create such things in CG.

Some 3D packages have their own tools for fluid simulations Houdini — Fluid Solver, 3ds max — PhoenixFD plugin, Maya — Bifrost, Cinema4D — RealFlow plugin.
But, unlike them, RealFlow was created directly for this kind of simulation — liquid. From the first versions, it has a big changes and every time it becomes more interesting and diverse in terms of tools and opportunities.
In this package, using the example of various scenes, I’ll try to show you the possibilities of the program in different situations, using different particle systems, tools and scales.

RealFlow pack content

Part 1. Fundamentals.

For those who have never worked in RealFlow or does not have enough knowledge of the tools and capabilities — in this lesson we’ll review the main points of simulation, program settings, particle and object parameters.

— Basics settings in the program;

— Particles systems and forces that affect them;

— Import-export objects, interaction parameters.

Part 2. Particle simulations.

The program has several systems for fluid simulation. The very first system is based on particles.

— Create a small-scale simulation using simple particles. Methods for controlling the process using Daemons;

— Working with splines and using noise;

— Simulation of viscous liquid;

Part 3. Work with Dyverso system.

Dyverso is adapted to work with multi-core processors and a large amount of material.

— Create waterfalls with Dyverso;

— Simulation of snow and sand;

Part 4. Large scale simulations in Hybrido.

Hybrido was created for large-scale simulations — a voxel system with the possibility of creating secondary simulations based on particles.

— The principle of Hybrido, the creation of secondary simulations (Splash, Foam, etc.);

— The Whirlpool;

— The water surface generation and interaction with the object — the floating ship;

— Falling on water;

— Flooding the city;

Bonus.

We give some lessons about compositing in Nuke as a free bonus. The material used for the bonus is taken from learned lessons. You will learn not just the basics of rendering material, but also will work with passes and shots finalizing. Lessons demonstrate creating a project from scratch and do not require any additional knowledge, so even a beginner can follow through.
