I am going to show you a work in progress about a waterfall. For the simulation I am using RealFlow and I will use Maya and mental ray or Arnold for ther render.
I did a lot of tests and finally I decided to start again because I need more detail. So I need more time to simulate and a few millions of particles more … ah, and a new 3TB hard drive, the sim takes about 1GB per frame.
Here you can see a couple of videos. The first one is from December 2013 and the problem was that I didn´t have enough particles to make a satisfactory mesh, I lost a lot of detail so after a few days I started again.
In the second one is the final simulation.
Now I am doing the mesh, but it takes between 12-20 min per frame. I´ll show you as soon as I can.
