Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Keyframing node parameters, part of Up and Running with RealFlow.
- Although it's unlikely that you will…animate objects in RealFlow,…it's very common to animate parameters.…For example, the speed of particles.…I want the water to start pouring out…of the faucet when this handle turns.…When I scrub across the timeline,…with no simulation calculated,…we can see that the handle has some animation…on it beginning at frame 15 until about frame 19.…Let's animate the speed of the emitter…in order to match the existing animation on the handle.…
It works very similarly to Maya, in fact.…And because I have no keyframes on the emitter currently,…and it's parameters are set to where I want them to be,…I wanna go to the end of the animation.…Let's go down to frame 18.…Select the circle emitter in the nodes panel,…go to the circle parameters,…and you'll see speed is set to a value of one.…Let's keyframe that.…Just select the parameter, right-click it,…and choose add key.…
And if you click off of that parameter…onto any other parameter, now you'll see…it's highlighted in orange indicating…that there's a keyframe there on frame 18.…

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.
