Tutorial: water stream with Thinkbox Frost

 Hammer Chen

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use very simple particle setup and Thinkbox Frost, to create realtime water stream. Of course this is not as accurate as Realflow but can be useful for some conditions.

Video tutorial with subtitle:

0. Scene setup:
The basic idea is to use Superspay as a particle source, with proper spacewrap binding, the particles can move more or less like water. Then we use Frost to create water mesh from Superspray.

1.  Create a Superspray in your scene:

2.  Create a Drag force:

3. Create a Gravity:

4. Create a wind:

5. Bind all the forces (Drag, gravity and Wind) to your superspray. Create a Frost and pick up the Superspray. Change the type to "Anisotropic"

6.  Frost: tweak around those parameters till you get good results. That's it! sooooo easy ; )
