  1. Twisting Steam - HELP!

    Hi Guys I'm trying to great a steam effect, whereby the steam twists in a vortex like shape - see image attached/below. It needs to almost look like an hourglass in profile, with the steam pinching together in the middle I'm a relatively Noob Houdini user. I'm totally fine with all the Pyro sim side of things, but I'm not sure the best way to art direct the smoke into this shape? Custom velocity forces using geometry fed into the sim? - if so, whats the best way of controlling the velocity angles on geometry (I've got zero experience with VEX!) Any tips or advice greatly appreciated.
  2. Divergence Problem

    Hi Guys. I'm trying to create a kind of 'expanding foam' effect (like an Elephant's Toothpaste chemical reaction). Expanding out of a teacup. But my FLIP fluid is hitting a weird shelf and not overflowing the edges of the cup properly (see below). My emitter is a sphere at the bottom of the cup. .hiplc file also attached. Any pointers hugely appreciated. Elephant_Foam_02.hiplc
  3. Elephant Toothpaste - any ideas??!!

    Hi Guys I'm still relatively new to Houdini, but I'm trying to simulate an "Elephant Toothpaste" effect, as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kou7ur5xt_4&feature=youtu.be&t=42 What would be your overall approach/strategy for creating this kind of expanding foam effect? Thanks in advance, Adam
