Hi All,

I have been trying to make this effect (attached pics), but not going anywhere. Could anyone help? 

Thanks a lot!

Best,

if you already have an animation you can for example use Trail SOP to make multiple copies of it in time, mesh together using VDBs and assign glass material to it, then render with your original object that's shaded differently, black in this case

I will try this and see how it goes. Thanks Tomas!

Hi Tomas,

I have tried different ways to make the polygon lines into mesh (fluid surface look) after the trail node. But no luck. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Trail should work just fine.  You don't need that scatter. Unpack that geo > convert to poly (or maybe not) > add (remove all geo, but keep the points) > trail > resample. You might want to add timeblend for that character you have, so it will interpolate between frames, but it will resample without the timeblend too

This looks much better and closer to what I am trying to achieve. Thx! Still figuring how to convert this into the liquid form.
