THX,

my first guess would be to use soft body dynamics. and slowly make the icecube softer and softer.

but then i am no expert for sfx :p

I think the tut used softbody dynamics, a gravity blobby thing, and an elastic deforming thingy that helped keep the pot (A|W melted a pot, pun intended I think) in shape for a while.

Funny thing with their tut was that if you inceased the gravity the thing bounced up and down for ages, looks very funny.

Use a lattice. Alias have a tutorial on this at there 'How To' page. Is about melting a vase, but just use a ice cube as your model.

I try to find the one i did to show you.
