TUTORIAL RealFlow’s Hybrido technology you are able to create impressive large-scale fluid simulations with detailed splashes and turbulent surface structures. Another feature, the so-called ocean statistical spectrum, gives you the ability to add realistic waves to the fluid’s surface. The question is how these two elements can be combined? Which settings do you have to ..
TUTORIAL RealFlow’s Hybrido technology is perfectly suited to the creation of large amounts of water, such as floods, or ocean surfaces. You start with the so-called core fluid to simulate the fluid’s expansion and the main splashes. Once you are happy with the behaviour and look of the core fluid you add more and more ..
TUTORIAL When you work with Hybrido grid fluids, you always need a specific setup. The first node is a grid fluid domain to subdivide the simulation space into equal cells. The domain can be seen as an environment where the fluid simulation actually takes place. At the moment, the domain is nothing but an empty ..
TUTORIAL Animation support is an essential part of each 3D package and RealFlow is no exception. In RealFlow, animation is not limited to the motion of an object, but most of a node’s parameters and attributes can be changed over time. This lesson shows you how to work with animation curves, use sophisticated copy and ..
TUTORIAL RealFlow provides a wide variety of settings to adjust a simulation’s environment. These parameters strongly influence a simulation’s speed, accuracy, and behaviour. For this reason it is crucial to understand how these settings work together and what can be done to accelerate a simulation. Additionally, we give an overview of how to use the ..
TUTORIAL RealFlow supports a large number of file types for different applications: fluid dynamics, rigid and soft body simulation, texture maps, previews, and data exchange. All these resources can be managed in RealFlow’s “Export Central” dialogue. There, you will find path definitions for RealFlow’s simulation folders. By altering the folder and resources’ names you can ..
TUTORIAL RealFlow simulations often create large amounts of data and several hundreds of Gigabytes are quite normal with Hybrido fluids. Even with fast SSD devices it is not possible to play back the cached data in real-time. Therefore, RealFlow provides a preview function where all frames of a simulation are loaded and then recorded either ..
TUTORIAL RealFlow’s “Relationship Editor” is an easy-to-use tool that supports and accelerates your workflow when you have to deal with large amounts of nodes, and global or exclusive connections between a scene’s elements. This introduction shows you how to arrange nodes, navigate the editor’s canvas, work with right-click menus, and establish links. You will also ..
TUTORIAL Introduces RealFlow 2013 different layout elements, shows you how to create, store, and load custom layouts even how to add images to the viewport’s background. It discusses the most important preferences, explains how to add nodes, and work with RealFlow’s various right-click menus. After this tutorial you will also know how to filter, rename, ..
