Here is a PFX/HV test (http://www.3DInk.com/ink2.mov)
someone on the Yahoo group inquired about how to do this, so I just had to try! ;)

Here is another test (http://www.3DInk.com/ink.mov)

I think it moves a little too fast, but it looks pretty sweet.

It may sound dirty, but on that new one all I can picture is sperm. It seems like the motions on them are more clearly sinusoidal-kind of swimming movements. I liked the first one better.

I also think it's still moving too fast. I'm no scientific expert, but when I picture ink or blood or something dissipating in water, I imagine it spreading rapidly at first, then getting really slow. Your tests have the speed shift some, but I think it needs to be greater.

Looking good. I think the effect is more convincing in the first movie.

a couple of parent emitters, with children leaving trails.
