Phoenix FD Fire tips火焰設定技巧


Phoenix FD 2.2的官方教學目前較著重於液體,爆破與濃煙,大尺度浪花。對於火焰的細節反而未多著墨。這裡翻譯兩篇在官方論壇上相關的文章,這兩篇問到了很關鍵的問題,Phoenix FD的主程式也提供了珍貴的設定建議。

Q: 如何可以讓火焰更長(更持久)? Best way to create longer (lasting) flames?
我在汽車底下放了一個火焰來源物件(source object) ,希望火焰能夠圍繞汽車,然後燃燒到接近車頂。整體來說模擬是ok的,但是火焰太快變成煙了我要怎樣讓火焰更長更延伸呢我試著增加溫度參數但是沒什幫助。
(譯者注:這對FumeFX用戶來說也是最基本但也最重要的問題,FumeFX裡面將burn rate調低,variation。)

Phoenix FD 2.2 守恆參數比較


作者:Hammer Chen

Phoenix FD 2.2的設定參數比FumeFX更複雜,更不直觀。往好處想是Phoenix FD能夠針對各種狀況最佳化,當你計算液體時,可以用適合液體的守恆演算法。當體積守恆不是那麼重要的時候,你又可以切換道另外一種演算法。Phoenix FD 2.2提供三種守恆(conservation)方法:Symmetric (對稱法),Smooth(平滑法), Buffered (緩衝法)。物質轉移(Material transfer)與守恆有關,Phoenix FD 2.2亦提供四種方法處理:Classic(經典法), Slow moving( 緩慢移動), Forward transfer (正向轉移),Multi-pass (多個pass)。

Split geometry like a professional


Hammer Chen

Nowadays, almost everyone can split their 3D model with just one single button. From free maxscript "Splititup" to Rayfire. Even though Rayfire provide you option to cut geometry in radial, the results are still not realistic.

Fore realistic fracture, you must have:

  1. Focal point: the one near impact point have to be higher density (smaller debris) than the one far a way.
  2. the cracks not always go in straight line
  3. Section from fracture should not be smooth.
Here are my tips. The basic concept is first cut my geometry with Rayfire, then cut with thinkingParticles.

1. Split geometry with Rayfire (ProBoolean Uniform), mat ID = 2. Notice the cracks are not straight line after split with ProBoolean Uniform.




2. Select some parts from step one, then cut with thinkingParticles. You can find detail tutorial HERE.

Input parts into thinkingParticles

those particles are used for focal splitting (volumeBreak, cells)


Make sure the Mat ID = 2

The blue parts are cut with thinkingParticles volumeBreak node

3. After split our 3D model with Rayfire plus thinkingParticles, we get this fracture model.

 Section with different Mat ID and correct UVW

With different Mat ID, you are able to give different material to surface and section for the geometry

4. After apply dynamic simulation, I got this final results. Hope you like it ;)
