Learn how to move, scale, and change speed of a fluid cache.
- [Narrator] The fluid loader object…gives us the ability to manipulate…a fluid cache already stored on disk.…With the loader we can transform…a fluid cache in both space and time.…This is something we could not do previously.…Without the fluid loader we could not…even move a liquid object.…But with the loader we can not only move,…rotate, and scale, but we can change…the playback speed, play the cache backward,…reuse the same cache files multiple times…in the same timeline, and generally…warp time any way we like.…
So let's do that, we'll open up the simulation view.…Go in to animation, fluids, simulation view.…Open up Liquid001 which is the object,…select the syrup_solver,…and then all of its parameters load.…We need to have a cache in order to use…the fluid loader so we'll need to run the simulation.…Click on the play button and the simulation…begins to calculate, give that a few minutes…while the simulation processes…and the cache is stored on disk.…
Once the simulation has completed…we can just rewind and play back…
