In this tutorial, Controlling & Simulating 3D Fluids: Maya Fluids and Bifrost, we will introduce you to Maya’s two main fluid simulation techniques. Maya’s Fluid Effects beautifully simulates gaseous effects. We will demonstrate this tool by creating a venom ejection simulation. You’ll also learn about Maya’s new Bifrost liquid simulator and how it is useful for creating 3D liquid splash and pour simulations.
We encourage you to also explore the related tutorial, Controlling & Simulating 3D Fluids: Maya nParticles, 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 Maya’s Fluid Effects to create a gaseous simulation.
- Learn how to use Bifrost, Maya’s new 3D liquid simulation engine.
- Compare the two techniques to help determine which simulation method is most appropriate.
