Maya | Creating a Lava Lamp Effect With RealFlow

Using Realflow to create a floating oil type of effect, Ran Ben Avraham shows how to build a lava lamp effect, walking through the simulation, lighting, shading and rendering.

in this tutorial you’ll learn how to simulate a lava lamp’s hot wax floating in oil with Realflow

Using RealFlow’s Condensed particle Cluster that is acted upon by several forces, Ran Ben Avraham demonstrates how to create a mesh sequence from the resulting simulation which will be imported into Autodesk Maya, where he shows how to create an SSS shader for the wax and light the scene for rendering.
