RealFlow 2013: Watch preview videos online now
Next Limit’s Luis Miguel Mora has posted five preview videos showing the upcoming version of its fluid dynamics software at work
RealFlow 2013 – due out later this year – will be released with new fluid dynamics software: Hybrido 2.
This solver has been created from scratch in order to replace the current one.
The videos show Hybrido 2 in action and, as you can see, it’s quite fast and results in realistic fluid simulations.
“Finally I was allowed to share with you some simulations that I did with the new Hybrido solver, to be released within RealFlow 2013,” Mora’s says on his blog.
“For those of you interested, the new solver is an implicit solver, as opposite to the current one which is an explicit solver. Implicit solver means that just only a few simulation steps per frame are needed, and this means, of course, faster simulations. It means also that “bounciness” is totally removed. The current solver needs many many simulation steps if you want to remove ‘bounciness’, and even doing it you can’t remove it completely.”
