Lava-like Fluids...
i am working on an animation that requires, an india ink bottle be knocked over and for the ink to flow outward and spread across the table in a controlled manner...

...would it be possible for someone to point me in the right direction, or maybe someone knows of a tutorial that describes a similar event like lava, and/or thick gel of some sort.

...i am new to fluids and fluid containers so any help would be greatly appreciated

Ah, I think I know. Mtmckinlley has some great tutorials on his site about fluids. They are definitely worth a look.

Nobody felt like avenging your death. Sorry.

I totaly agree with the above poster,

Mike has a great basic blobby liquid tutorial that would be perfect for this!!!
Just change a few settings to the attenuation make the particles move slower as the ink comes to a stop

Dont be afraid of mike because he has a beard...
He's really a cool guy, once you take away his chainsaw, and wash his victims blood from his hands hehe....
