Topic - Importing Blender fluid simulation (with particles) into Modo

Trying out different methods to get a fluid simulation from Blender imported into Modo. Drops, floats and tracers are all included with this one.
Awesome, is this an obj sequence?
That's pretty friggen sweet............ do tell!!
Yeh! love to know how you did this :) looks amazing
did you use a blob with the pointcloud?
Yeah, that would be great if you share how you achieved the import from blender ;)
Yeah, it is simply a combo of exported .obj sequences.

I've used:

-an older plugin from Fredrik Stenson for the fluid mesh (Mesh Sequence http://forums.luxology.com/topic.aspx?f=4&t=72352)

-emReader from Mootzoid for drop and float particles (http://www.mootzoid.com/wb/pages/luxologymodo/emreader.php)

-and a particle import technique from James Guard for the tracer particles (https://vimeo.com/21617994)

That way I can apply separate materials to the fluid mesh & the particles.

I'm thinking of cooking up a quick tutorial. :)
yes please do the tutorial , your results look great!
Yeah! I would also love to see a tutorial.

Hi!

Here is the TUTORIAL.

Exporting Blender Fluid Simulation into Modo

If Blender fluid simulation is a mystery, here's something to get you started:

Fluid Simulation in Blender 2.66

Couldn't resist seeing what one can do with the good old screencast format. Hence all the bells and whistles.

Cheers!

Thank you so much for taking the time to show us all how you did that. Priceless!
Awesome............
Great stuff, thanks!
Thank you very much for your tutorial! Helped a lot!
Thanks a lot for the feedback!

Does anyone have any cool ideas on how to improve the foam? To make it look better on close ups for example?

Cheers!
Hi Thanks for the tutorials :) Fluids is fun as hell!!!!

Question
If I export fbx from blender single frame all the meshes looks as they should
but if I export fbx animation I just get a dead meash no deforming by fluids?!

Is that a problem in Modo or Blender.


How do I import OBJ sequence in modo 701?

Cheers Peter
Exact the same way as described in the tutorials ;)
You need fs_MeshSequence_v2.5 for Modo and on the blender side you have to export as obj sequence.
Ahh sorry I read somewhere that the fs_MeshSequence did not work in 701 so that's why I did not bother with it.

Good file renamer for osx
Found this fast and nice http://manytricks.com/namemangler/.
