Turning object to liquid upon impact

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want to have an object (that i've modeled) drop from a height and upon impact with the floor turn into a liquid. There may be an obvious way through this but I'm new to Houdini, can someone suggest the nodes and/or processes I need to investigate to achieve this effect.

Many thanks

convert your object to FLIP before impact, use shelf tool flip fluid from object.

Thanks.  I'll give that a go.

Hi, just a quick question on this, How do I key-frame this FLIP sim to occur only upon impact? If i do what you suggest then the object is voxelized which messes up the UV's meaning that it won't receive the materials i've made. Basically, just need to know where to look to be able to work with materials within this sim.

Hey tamagochy, any chance you could elaborate for a novice? i'm pretty stuck.. My questions are 1) How do I 'copy' the 'strat' (strategic?) frame, 2) Where do I paste it (in which node and where?)  and 3) I'm using rigid bodies solver so the object falls and retains UV's, but will turn it into FLIP fluid 1 frame before impact - Have i got this process right?

 

This will be imported to a game engine btw, not sure sure if this will effect how I do all this.

 

As for transferring UV's, im just going to following this tutorial -
