Default Semi-Solid Liquid....

OK...i want to make some semi-solid liquid in the transparant tank. I want it to fill up and keep moving without it spilling over the edge of the tank so when view as a side close-up you see it filling then keep moving.

I also want to make a glass ball with the same style of liquid flowing around the surface of the ball.

Any ideas on how i could do both os these cos i dont have a clue.

I'm running 4.0 Unlimited, btw.

Here are a few clips of what i'm looking for, only in a sky blue/turquise colour. The first file is mostly the style i want. The third one is the style i'm after for the liquid on the ball's surface.

Thnaks in advance

Well for the blobby one, I would suggest blobby particles
(F1 > Particle render type > blobbies)

For the liquid in the cube, seeing how you only have Maya 4, you might wann check out this tutorial, it might help you:
http://www.geocities.com/jozvex/tuto...rparticle.html

Otherwise, a plugin called "realflow" would be perfect for that.

When you can get Maya 4.5 Fluids, you will be able to do that

Try the Glu3d. It's a great plug-in. I think it can simulate what u intended to do. And it is very simple.

Sorry all, had to delete a post.

The rules are specific folks, we cannot have people offering software for free unless it is liscensed as such.

Glu3D is NOT free, so please, don't post about offering a "free" copy, or we will have no choice but to ban you from the SM boards

Sorry, those are the rules that you have agreed to in the beginning

Thanks!
