Breaking the Bank - Bifrost, Bullet, nDynamics, Fluid
Key Features
In this five and a half hour long tutorial we create a complex simulation using four of the main dynamics engines found in Maya. We start of by learning how to precisely shatter geometry, followed by simulations with Bullet physics. After our simulation has been done we cache it out using Maya's pipeline cache. We then introduce Bifrost to create a liquid that our pipeline cache can interact with.

From here we use nParticles to quickly add greater detail to our simulation, and introduce Maya Fluids to create dust.

This project covers Bifrost, Bullet, nDynamics and Fluids interacting together to create the simulation you can see in the video below.
