  1. hi all The more i look at this effect the better it gets, but I'm have problems understand how to control the viscosity with temperature to the level seen in the video I have been told it looks like it was done in vex (vex isn't my strong suit) I would like a better explanation of the process it took to get such go control of lava (flip fluid). thank you http://vimeo.com/97108317
  2. Trying to understand how this lava after was done

    wow thanks solitude, and gramx The question I still have is how do I control(set) the temperature. It's cooling to quickly for me( in solitude file). What i'm trying to say is, because viscosity is based off the temperature how do I control how the temperature cools( giving it custom values). For example gramxs video shows that at the hottest level the viscosity is 25 and at the coolest its 100,000. How do I get that level of control, and is there way to control how long the temperature stays hot and when it starts to cool. Thanks for the help guys

  6. Plz help with critiques/advices/tips

    Hi all I'm looking for Critiques and tips on how I can improve my work. I simulated this using the Pyro solver and open cl with the sub steps 1(min) and 6(max) and a CFL condition of 3. The hope was to reduce the ghosting/trailing that is happening with the feet but as u can see it didn't work as I'd hope. Other then that I like the effect that came out but I wanted others option on how it looks. I didn't use combustion but here are some other settings. shape tab (pyro solver) division size of .04 dissipation of .075 disturbance 1.8 turbulence 0.25 simulation tab timescale 1 temperature 1.7 cooling rate 0.6 viscosity 0 buoyancy lift 17 buoyancy Dir 0,0,-1 smoke_horse_N2_ren.mov

    HI all I had a question about getting a similar looking render to the Thor film, your saying we can get particle to look that solid with so few particles using shaders and and glow fx and if so can u clarify more, like beside the fresnel pass what other passes should we render out . Thanks.

  14. Houdini sim problem

    Hi guys I'm trying to sim out a pyro fx in Houdini but everytime I do something happens to the bego file. The file would stop growing and just come out as 2 KB but that shouldn't happen the frame before that was at 3 million KB. For the next few frames they all come out as 2 KB but then randomly the next frame comes out at 4 million KB or just stay a 2 KB.I tried read in the file to see what was happening but on the 2 KB frames there's no data.I attach the file and the video for the read in files, but the files won't work can't send the cache files i'm working with. exp_test.mov sep_17.hipnc
