- As you might recall from this course showcase,…we have a time remapped scene that lasts…only a few seconds, but it's very effective,…and it's very dramatic in my eyes.…And that small scene reveals…a highly detailed simulation.…The way that slow motion or time remapped scenes…work is basically we render the scene…in a large amount of frames per second,…for example, I rendered it in 100 frames per second,…and in your compositing software of choice,…in my case that is After Effects,…I interpreted that render as 25 frames per second…and enabled time remap for it.…
Of course, there's a lot more to it,…but basically that's how it's done.…In order to render our…100 frames per second scene in Maya…we need to first simulate…100 frames per second scene in RealFlow.…To do that, we'll need to change the frame rate…we are working in.…We'll go to the Simulate button,…to the dropdown arrow next to it.…And we'll click on it, and the last command here,…which is below the recording area,…is Options, let's click on it.…
And over here we've got the Simulation options.…
Note this is a project-based learning experience, designed for members who are already familiar with RealFlow. Each step of the process is rich with lessons applicable to the variations that motion design artists will face in the real world.
- Importing geometry in RealFlow
- Setting up dynamic types and world scale
- Rearranging objects in 3D space
- Simulating soft bodies
- Speeding up and slowing down simulations
