View Full Version : Do you have a fluid cache file for me?

01 January 2013, 11:36 PM
Hi Everyone

I am currently updating my fluid shader for mentalRay and Arnold (probably VRay if the others are working).

To optimize the shading speed and caching, I am collecting a wide range of different kinds of fluid simulations. (To be more specific: I am collecting the cache files of the sim)
I just need ONE file of a simulation to test compressions/filter/speed.
Multiple files of the same simulation do not help as the fluid has a similat shape/size/values/color.

It should be something in production quality (not a tiny 20x20x20 fluid grid...)

Types of cache files:
- emFluid/.bafl
- Maya .mc
- blender .bphys
- openVBD
- field3D
- Phoenix .aur
- FumeFX ( Not yet supported as I am not able to get any contact via ( Tried 4 times in 2 years. Does someone know any other contact address?)
- Any fluid cache format I am missing?

If you happen to have a cache file:
- Create a text file with your (company) name.
- Zip the text file with the cache file(s).
- Upload it via a file hoster and post the link or send the link to mail (at)
I found a list of file hoster here:

Files < 60MB:
If your file is less than 60MB, then you can use (
(I am getting a new one for larger files, but right now I cannot change the limit.)

When I am finished, I will perhaps add all fluid tests to one large video sequence with one fluid/frame and stats like load/render time.

Many thanks
