Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an emitter, part of Up and Running with RealFlow.
- To generate standard particles in our real flow scene,…we will want to create an emitter.…Go to the liquid particles shelf.…These are all emitters of various types.…Let's click Circle, and that creates a circle emitter.…The first thing I want to do is rename it…because it's simply named Circle 01.…I want to distinguish that from a piece of geometry.…This is a particle emitter.…I'll double click on Circle 01…and rename it to Circle Emitter 01…and press Enter.…
I just want to move it and scale it…so that it is at the faucet at the sink, here.…Grab the scale tool or press the R key…and dolly back a bit with Alt and right mouse.…Scale that down and then grab the move tool…or use the W key and position it.…You'll need to switch between different views…in order to position this most precisely.…Let's go to the top view.…Right click in the view and choose View, Top,…and we also want to see this in wire frame.…
Right click again and choose Scene Shading Wire Frame.…That way, we can position that circle better.…Grab the scale tool and make it smaller.…

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.
