I got a wierd problem please try the following steps. ( its easy to crash maya ;) )
make 3D fluid container ( no emiter, and take hotbox and reset it )
then go to atribute aditor and put from Fluidshape1 the contents methods all to off (zerro)
then go to shading and put the transparensy way up
Then put the COLOR, INCANDESCENCE and the OPACITY to constand.
Then the color make it light bleu (or so).
Remove the colors from incandescence so you will have black.
** now you will have a box filled with blue transparant fluid that realy doesnt do any thing **
But here is comes... render it.... dont change the render settings just maya ..iff bla bla the standart things.
well. BIG fatal error over and over and over again..
the wierd thing is that when i do it over and make clouds of it. ( i asume you know how) * with at texture everything selected and so on*
and i put render on MR and high up quality i have totaly no problems..
wel does any one have the same problem after doing these steps?
