    Realflow Effect with Native Lightwave Particles and HV

    I was looking through Youtube for any convincing fluids done with native Lightwave particles and Hypervoxels.
    results where very disappointing and hardly any decent tutorials. So I decided to play around this is my result.

    I managed to achieve closer to Realflow effect so it is possible to some extent.

    >> Lightwave only -- >> https://youtu.be/qHIWdxvu9Bc click pause play to see the build up ....

    some turbulence was added then they fade out to the top.

    I hope that somehow we can get enough interest in Porting Flip-Fluids ( A mini houdini) from Blender

    say with a group buy at a little higher, it's a steal @ $75 . See : importing Flip-Fluids to LW on YouTube!

    Wow! That was some really cool stuff. And yes, Lightwave is missing a decent particle system. I use Real Flow to do my fluid effects, but if you don't want to spend that kind of money, Dark Chief's Deep Rising Plugin has got a lot going for it, especially for the price.

    I'm still experimenting with the native LW Particles due to lack of decent examples online ...

    Forget about lightwave trying to acheive real flow effects, your sample is more of actuall typical lightwave effect and I am sorry to say......doesnīt really match what is typicly a real flow effect.

    If you do not wish to add expensive plugins, but wanīt to get closer to real flow effects, blender is the way to go..there is importers for it as well.

    Oh i would love to see that, i think DeepFX, UP and Flip work differently, need to know if LW is up to all that flip involves.

    Yes its not Realflow I know the particles don't work the same way --->> Im just trying to create better examples of LW particles as there is actually nothing on youtube when it comes to liquid particles and lightwave.

    Yes, I understand..and sometimes you may want to see what can be pushed to itīs limit and try some challenges, just suggesting that it may not be worth the time to try and pursue that, If you instead can establish a pipeline with Blender and Lightwave for instance, or invest in Up or deep fx...or maybe better, actually real flow itself.

    itīs most likely that you may not reach the same level of result as to that of the mentioned options, and publish that as a showcase of what you can do with hypervoxels and particles will not be helpful, neither do I think it will
    live up to be useful in actual work, I blame that on how particles and hypervoxels work for cases like this...and not really how you work with it.

    I think there may be better examples on many folks harddrive, but I also think the results will not match blender, up, deep fx and realflow ..not in anyway near, thus I suspect they do not bother publishing it.

    Yes Sure thing I am Learning realflow will take some time .... in the meantime I still find myself testing LW out of curiosity.

    There are other effects where lightwave particles and hvīs can be better used, as demonstrated by this particle master David Ridlen...
