In this tutorial, Controlling & Simulating 3D Fluids: Maya nParticles, we will demonstrate how Maya’s powerful nParticle dynamics can be used to create flowing liquids and apply this technique in a 3D liquid splash simulation. Although nParticles have many applications in Maya, we will customize settings that are effective for a gel loading animation.
We encourage you to also explore the related tutorial, Controlling & Simulating 3D Fluids: Maya Fluids & Bifrost, to fully understand the strengths of these different approaches to fluid simulation. We developed these two tutorials to help you determine which method is most appropriate for your production needs.
- Learn how to use nParticles to create liquid splash effects.
- Learn strategies for customizing settings for nParticles
- Learn strategies for efficiently rendering and compositing fluids
