- For a particle simulation of running water,…of course, we will need a gravity effect.…Otherwise, the particles will just fly off into space.…To add gravity, go to the shelf labeled Daemons.…And in RealFlow, a Daemon is like a field in Maya,…or a force in 3ds Max.…Basically, it's some effect…that's going to influence the simulation.…And you'll see that there are lots of them.…Some of them have a K in front of them, and that means kill.…
The ones that are labeled with a K…will delete particles that satisfy certain conditions.…Right now, what we want, of course, is gravity.…And I'll click the gravity button.…And I get a gravity Daemon icon in the viewport here,…and if I dolly back a bit with Alt and right mouse,…you can see that it's quite large.…I can move that, or I can just hide it.…Now that it's here, I don't ever really…need to deal with it again, so I can hide it.…As we saw before, we can hide objects…from the display shelf here.…
We can also hide objects from the Node Params.…With that gravity Daemon selected,…

You'll learn how to create small-scale effects with standard particles, create free-flowing water effects with the Hybrido solver, and simulate open bodies of water such as oceans and ponds with RealWave. Author Aaron F. Ross also shows how to control interactions between objects and fluids with Caronte, the rigid- and soft-body physics engine included with RealFlow.
