RealFlow Scene: Boat through storm. Download the scene.

Download this RealFlow scene where a ship is crossing the sea in the middle of a storm. You have two possibilities, either downloading the scene with initial state and ready for simulating or downloading the scene without initial state for checking out the parameters. Your choice😉

Tips and Tricks: Loading animated Multibodies and Cache scripts

Hi all,

I want to share a couple of batch scripts so that the workflow with realflow is simpler.

The first script is like a post I put month ago about to load animated multibodies. Now it will be easier with this script. You must paste the path where the animated sd is. If there are several sd files, will load all of them. REMEMBER we can’t use the animated multibodies for using with dynamics due to the infinite forces, but only with fluids. Click here to download the script.

Another script is to load the cache even if you don’t have any cache saved for your objects in the scene. Sometimes we want to load the cache till a frame, but with ALT + U we need an cached object with, at least, more or the same number of frames simulated. With this script is not necessary to use ALT + U, only put the frame where you want to go and if you want to keep the original range you had in your scene. Easy. Click here to download this script

Tips and tricks: Importing objects from a XML file

Hi everyone,

When creating  and opening a scene, we find issues to import the objects if they are not in the “objects” folder. A box dialog will open and ask us where are the objects.  It is tedious if we have a lot of objects to import. So, in order to import them in just one time, we can use the XML files and the $(XMLPATH) command in this way.

Where “C:/Users/Administrator/Desktop/esfera.sd” will be replaced with

Putting the $(XMLPATH) and checking the “Apply to all files…” will import the all external sd files where the XML file is placed and subfolders. It means if you have saved the xml file in “c:\temp\scene.xml” if you import the xml from this path, putting $(XMLPATH) command will check all objects in “C:\temp” and subfolders.
