hello, folks...

I am doing short presentation for my team, and having difficult time to start off for 'liquid flow' part...

In the sample movie, the liquid (or Gas) is represented in red, as you see...
Although I've not much experience with AE or Combustion, open to any possiblee solution...
3ds Max is my main tool for modeling and animation, FYI...

Any help & suggestion would be greatly appreciated~!

Model the paths for the tubes, use Pathdeform or an animated loft object.
You may also use animated masks in After Effects.

hmmm.... I am complete newbie @ AE...
I am wondering how to apply animation on LOFT object...
Do I do animate 'path'?

You may animate the scale of the loft in the Deformations rollout.
Do I do animate 'path'?Nevber thought about that. Why don't you just try it out and tell us about the results?
