View Full Version : The Shining - elevator of blood

This is a half-scale, Lightwave animation that I rendered just for amusement in spare hours. I never expected it to look exactly like the real thing or to have taken it even this far. The RealFlow sim uses only about 1.6 million particles and so the resulting meshes appear thicker and 'blobbier' than an actual water-like liquid at this scale. I think at least ten million particles would begin to look convincing, but since this took over a month to calculate and render on an I7, 3.2gh quad core...

That looks cool to me. Recreation of some spectacular movie shot, I guess, even adds extra difficulties since everyone will naturally compare with original. But this one you pulled off nicely. Damn, I am even in no position of judging, have no Realflow experience but your mention of months simul and render work on I7 clearly indicates your amount of effort :buttrock:
