Get up and running with RealFlow, the motion picture industry's standard tool for liquid simulations.
Learn how to set up and direct Bullet simulations for collisions, breakage, and simple cloth effects.
Start creating great looking particle animations for rain, smoke, fire, and more with Particle Flow in 3ds Max.
Learn to render realistic bodies of water such as ponds and oceans and underwater shots with Maya—essential skills in a visual effects artist's toolkit.
Bring scenes to life by building realistic fluid simulations in Maya, including foam and bubbles, liquid being poured, and volumetric liquid in a container.
Introduces the viewer to the complete range of options available in the 3ds Max MassFX (also known as PhysX) toolset.
Shows how to generate stunning special effects simulations in Maya, including exploding fireworks, tumbling snowflakes, and burning flames.
Create dynamic, randomly generated particle effects that can emulate snow, rain, steam, explosions, and more in 3ds Max animation projects.
Highlights some Maya features including how to reuse MEL expressions as well as how to manipulate paint effects to give particles a final look and feel.
