Splash without tank


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

I am trying to decipher how this magician created this effect (video below) and am having trouble.  Does anyone have literature or links they can think of to help me out?

I am still pretty new to Houdini so I really only have the basics of the effect down.  I have scattered particles around the impact zone but can't seem to get the velocity to go in the direction that I want, much less be able to adjust them with a slider.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Have you gotten the shared center do get directionality from? I'd experiement with a piece of geo or vdb for the impact volume and get directions for the explosion from there. Also it looks like they're using a POP fluid setup.
