View Full Version : attractive radial field and fluid

11 November 2009, 06:57 PM

When I look at the velocity of a fluid container affected by a negative radial field (with velocity draw), it looks the corners of the containers are attracted to the field center, but the center of the container faces are attracted the opposite direction. Also depending on the radial field position, its effect sometimes because quite unpredictable.
I guess it's because of the fluid sim and the facts that all voxels are dependant from each other, but I'm wondering if there are ways to circumvent that, to direct the fluid a bit better without using tons of fields.

Thanks a lot

One method of gaining better control over fluids is by using particles.
Emit particles into your container, then emit fluid from your particles in a runtime expression.

I also like to emit fluid, then emit particles as the source of a field through the fluid to influence it.
