View Full Version : using fluid to manipulate a nurbs surface

05 May 2009, 03:35 AM
Hey guys, need some help.. i want to take data from fluid "velocity" "Force" etc and use it to manipulate/generate geometry.

I know some basic mel, i know you can use "getFluidAttr" to access the data, but how do i visualize this through geometry such as a Nurbs surface?

Hey Ray,

Are you aware that an option already exists to convert fluid to polygons?
modify/convert/fluids to polygons

I did the mel for a project,convert fluid to nurbs
1,unzip the file,
2,drag drop the mel file "get_nurbs_fluidPlane_UI.mel" to maya, a window will pop
3,select preview plane of ocean(pond),click "get..."button
