setup whitewater with chached bgeos

Recommended Posts

okay guys, this is driving me crazy. I have a bgeo flip sim cached out (with surface and velxyz fields), then somehow deleted my source file. So I now want to add whitewater to my cached sim. How do I set this up? 

 

I'm bringing the sim in with a file node, then I just click the shelf tool. it tells me to select a fluid, so I select my file node (what else is there) and I get an error saying no fluid selected.. What am I supposed to do?

The easy way is to create a new setup from the shelf, flip and everything. Add whitewater to that. And then just re-link stuff to use your cached flip and delete what you dont need again.

You have to 'load from disk' the bgeo cache in the DOP I/O node you used to export it (if you used a ROP, it's the one you connected with) and then it will work using the shelf tool and selecting the fluid. It will simulate the whitewater from the cache file.

Just put a "file" and a "switch" node so that your white water network points to the file node (cached bgoes) as a source.
