Hi there

Can anyone help me please with the quickest way to achieve the effect of an object being formed by droplets of liquid that reform to a solid?

Is this mega complex or a breeze?

Thanks kindly

Jon

Generally I use a variation of the methods taught on this DVD:

Great - thanks Larry. I'm a newby to most animation techniques (I use LW mostly for print) so do you think I'll be OK with this level of technical knowledge? I know you have no idea were I'm at but is mostly fairly adequate modelling and shading skills.

The pouring technique could be something close to what I need, ie, amorphous original forming a defined result. Could this be done with a logo for instance?

Cheers
Jon

Theyre simple techniques that I use in production work all the time. :)
