Hello magicians, I'm working on a large scale FLIP scene and need some tips regarding to workflow. The main scene has 2 FLIP sims, 1 for a waterfall, and 1 for a river. On my current setup I made the river using narrow band, and the waterfall using a emitter, not sure if this is the best workflow in terms of speed and direction, the current setup looks like this (blue = waterfall / red = river) And here is a viewport sample Questions: 1) Is this the best approach for mixing a waterfall with a river? emitter + narrow band? 2) I saw in other post that some people breaks the geometry in equal modules and then put them together, should I break the river within 3 equal parts to save time and quality? 3) I readed that when you export particles, is useful to delete attributes that won't be used, I did a quick test with all attributes and 1 frame was 800mb, deleted some and took it to 200mb, is this a right approach? 4) For final meshing, should I create VDB / polygon soup and export passes in order to make detail stuff like foam? 5) Should I export particles in wedges? 6) There is a dop workflow to upres particle/flip mesh like "gasupres" within pyro? Would love to hear any tips regarding to large scale flip, will keep reading on the forum in the meantime Thanks!
Hello, I AM DYSLEXIC - a very nice student project I worked on back in 2015 just got published, I did FX for it, all in Houdini, then handed over caches to lighting and rendering guys (rendered in Mental Ray in Maya). I really like visual style and it was really interesting to do some effects for this style of animation. Enjoy Short breakdown: 00:48 - paper (cloth) sim, a proxy collision geo of hero character was animated and used for interactions 03:22 - RBD simulation advected by hand-drawn guide curves and underlying FLIP simulation, some VDB meshes for hill filling, procedurally generated pages between books with fake dynamics (even though they got totally lost in the renders)
Hey, Im trying to figure out how to create flip to have front of the simulation all the time splashy. I'm starting simulating from point A to point B and front of the simulation is pretty soft.. Ofcourse I can add some extra force at the begining where the emiter is but it will generate noise only near emitter but I would like to have noisy front of the simulation like on this simply attachment. Blue part repsresent this noise front of the simulation where I would like to have it all the time. I can try to create some volume with noise and animate it simillat to the river flow but I donkt think that this is the best idea for this. Any useful tips for this ?
