I'm right now looking at Maya Unlimited's awesome fluid effects. Anyway, I know its a little over my price range Grin but I just like seeing how far Alias|Wavefront is going to be just like the real world.

You can simulate fluids in Bryce by animating terrain and using metaballs for splashes.

I know. Bryce is -cool-. Did you see the Nuclear Nova logo protype I made in it?


Maya Fluid Effects - AJ Infinity - Mar 2, 2003 06:18 PM

Yup. That logo's pretty awesome. Cool


Maya Fluid Effects - Joseph Duchesne - Mar 2, 2003 06:21 PM

I want to redo my logo in it to. You know you can do shifting desert sands using animated terrains to?


Maya Fluid Effects - AJ Infinity - Mar 2, 2003 06:55 PM

Oh wait. I'm thinking of the wrong logo. Which are you talking about (I didn't see it on your site).

For shifting sands, animate the terrain with the timeline in the Terrain Editor.


Maya Fluid Effects - macboy - Mar 2, 2003 06:57 PM

I never saw it. Do you still have it? :?:


Maya Fluid Effects - AJ Infinity - Mar 2, 2003 07:01 PM

WHOA! I just did some googling for Bryce water tutorials and I found like 15. Cool Most are good.

Wow Wow JD those are awesome! Cool

Grin *bows* * looks as Cool as he can*

Thanks. The only problem is the render time. ~14 hours on normal AA on my dads G4 733!Shock Ouch I was trying to render it on my PM 7600/132 first thoughLOL I set it going over night and woke up to find it like 5% done! I wonder why Jake didn't use it? maybe it was too flashy?


Maya Fluid Effects - AJ Infinity - Mar 3, 2003 03:31 PM

14 hrs. Whoa. How high did you AA? What were all your render settings. I usually render with premium fx AA.

Super cool render. (two thumbs up)


Maya Fluid Effects - Joseph Duchesne - Mar 3, 2003 04:34 PM

*Wishes he got 3 thumbs upGrin then notices that AJ probably has only 2*
The world was in volumetrics(set in sky lab), the stars slowed it down and that's 10 volumetric spheres with their quality set on 75%. It took W-A-Y longer than I thought it would but it only took 2 hours to make. (1 hour makeing it and one hour waiting for the blasted preview to load on my 7600/132 Grin )
