I want to show you a video made with graphs in RealFlow 2013 to generate the sea turbulences. The scene is attached without geometry. The graph is based on the surface_force_field demo scene but it is adjusted for a domain of 214×90. The global scale for the cell size parameter is set to 2. Keep in mind to increase or decrease these value to get more or less particles.
Download the scene and the graph from here

I want to start several tutorials explaining the method to work from your 3D application, make the simulation in RealFlow, take all necessaries passes from the simulation and rendering them with Maxwell to composite with NUKE. We’are going to start with the easier video “The propeller simulation”
Here you are the first part “How to work with Alembic in RealFlow”
Download the propeller SD geometry from here
Enjoy RealFlow 2013!

This time I would like to show you some ibooks content that FX Guide made a few months ago. It is really cool. Take a look at this material produced by FX Guide for their iBook: From Sim to Render – the Next Limit Story.

Holidays have finished and here we are again to post new graph tool. Sometimes we want to apply our displacement map to the mesh so the render can be faster only rendering the mesh and not applying the displacement map in the render process. In that case, we can mesh the particles by using the apply displacement option inside RealFlow, but sometimes we forget to do it and simulate again the mesh and applying the displacement could be a long process. By using graphs, we can apply the displacement maps we want in the folder we want, to the mesh we want as well. In order to do that,
- just open a new RealFlow scene
- Open the Simulation Flow and load the graph
- Change the paths in the graph and the settings you need, like tiles.
This process is very faster, and you don’t need to create a mesh node if you don’t want. The mesh node is only to display the mesh in the viewport.
The graph can be downloaded from here or it can be alse downloaded from RealFlow resources
Enjoy RealFlow 2013.
