Realflow Demo

I learnt from my time at The-Neighbourhood that Realflow (particle simulation engine) can be used to create complicated and realistic water effects. This software is largely used in the VFX industry to create such effects for films and simulations.

I’ve spent some time learning this software and I’m happy to post my first results!

Using 3DS Max allowed me to use 3rd party render engines, giving me fantastic results! Although importing Realflow simulations does not support motion blur, I found rendering a short sequence then bluing them together afterwards created a similar result.

Excited to use Realflow in future projects!

Colourful Characters

For this project we had to create a set of letters that are graphically/aesthetically pleasing. My main inspiration for this water themed result came from studying the photography work of Martin Waugh, Jack Long and Corrie White. These artists have a common interest in capturing the movement of water. The use of coloured inks to improve their photography gave me the idea of chemicals in the lab. The colourful chemicals have spilt into letters, and the circle around the letter gives an impression of a microscope aswell as the low depth of field.
