FumeFX – Controllers

Here are some use-case examples of things that you could do with a feature in FumeFX that is probably one of the most under utilized – The Source Controllers.

PFlow: Box#3 – 2D Fluid Solver

This is a small exercise to test how well Particle Flow’s Box#3 performs as a pseudo visual scripting tool.

I chose a Java implementation of a 2D Fluid Solver from this website:
http://www.multires.caltech.edu/teaching/demos/java/stablefluids.htm
The above link has the Java code which I converted into MaxScript code for purposes of having a data medium to compare onto.

The Java code also implements Vorticity Confinement and Bouyancy Force for stabilizing velocities and simulating rising smoke – also implemented as Box#3 operators.

The solver is mostly based on the paper published by Jos Stam. With additional improvements from Ron Fedkiw and Henrik Jensen.

Hair Farm Studies

Here are a couple more Hair Farm studies. Majority of these tests will focus more on the simulation features of the product. Read More…

ornatrix_hairfarm_sims

First off, I would like to mention and thank this great Ornatrix 2 Review by Joe Gun. It inspired me to write down this post. It is not meant to be a concise review, but rather, more of just my thoughts – after trying out demos of both Hair Farm 2 and Ornatirx 2 for a short time (2 days to be exact).

Apart from testing out the basic hair generating features, most of my focus leaned more towards the dynamics and simulation side of the products, as this was supposed to be a quick R&D for an upcoming project.

* updated 2013-03-16: Added Hair Farm studies (click this link to view animations/tests).

MaxScript: Bone Divider

(After a very long while)

I’ve uploaded a new simple script for dividing bones at scriptspot.

Bone Divider 0.1

This was a result of watching THIS tutorial from the 3dsMaxHowTos Youtube videos.
Hopefully I’ve squished all the bugs since I just wrote the script today.

A friend also suggested that I create a version where it can automatically smooth out the creationg of the new bones.
I already have a few ideas on how to approach it — for the next version.

FumeFX – Crawling Smoke

Largely inspired by the work done in the movie 2012, I did some tests on how some FumeFX (1.x) parameters would affect a crawling smoke simulation.
