Store the current state of a liquid simulation.
- [Instructor] Initial state is a feature of simulations…in which we can set the initial conditions for a simulation…based upon the current conditions, so that means you can run…a simulation until you get a result that you like and then…store that as the initial state or start conditions…for a new simulation.…This is very helpful in many situations, a classic example…being this one in which I simply want this glass of water…to settle down and become completely motionless…before an action is performed upon it.…
I have a simple animation here in which the glass gets…knocked over and this purple cylinder here is going to…be the emitter for a 3ds Max fluid simulation.…If we rewind back to frame zero, I scale down the emitter…a bit in order to make this a more dramatic example…I'll make it so that the liquid sloshes around in the glass…a bit so we can actually see when the initial state…is being stored.…
Okay so that's why I've scaled down just for clarity…in the demo.…But normally it would be scaled up to fit inside…
