View Full Version : Is it possible to create an alka seltzer effect?

06-23-2008, 10:44 PM

I was trying to create an alka seltzer effect with no result.

The pill in the surface of the water dissolving with bubbles and foam.

Anyone have suggestions on this matter?

Best regards.

realFlow can help you!

Like filling a glass using an emiter with water settings and making the pill to be an object emitter? That object emitter can be set to emitt bubbles and interfere with the water?

Is there any shader that i can use in Maya to achieve this after making the particles and mesh on RealFlow?

Use the pill as a surface emitter - emit sprites for the bubbles and manipulate shader accordingly...

Thatīs exactly what i was trying to do...

Iīm not familiarized with dynamics, could you explain the process with a bit more detail or point some source where i can learn this?

Thanks in advance.

select your object, particles->emit from object
change 'emitter type' to 'surface'
