I've been playing with RealFlow trying to get a paint like gooey stretchy look, finally figured out that Surface Tension was the important ingredient in high values: 2000+

Guide here:

And some earlier not so successful but entertaining tests:

And this is just funny and awesome:

I created a fluid simulation a while ago and have been trying to find a way to pick out select particles and trace them, this turned out more difficult than one would expect. Requiring me to learn a new programming language (Python) in order to create something in realflow to pick out particles and clone them into a new emitter allowing for export to Cinema 4D.

FInally finished the python code to do it and imported it into cinema for some rough test renders:

Just created something that will trace the particles within realflow, allowing it to be meshed in realflow:

Realflow's execution of Python is unbelievably slow to the point of being useless, that or I''m doing something really wrong

Dunno who to blame for glitches, I have weird glitches across ALL applications lately, maybe my GPU is dying

More fun in RealFlow

Below is a editor render of the fluid.

In Cinema (15 minutes):

In Maxwell (4hours):

14 hours (and some post) later:

Cinema down a plug hole:

Maxwell down a plug hole:

Yes the maxwell render is out of focus, It's one of the problems of having a real camera setup and simulated lens
(and not setting up up correctly), but it still knocks the socks off cinemas render


Oops forgot to turn the water on on this
