Fluid (SOC): a littl help maybe?

So not to feel ungreatful but: Is it possible to animate elements of a SOC Fluid simulation? I tried pouring water into a moving cup and the cup moved, but the water did not. Is there a way around this that I don’t know about?

Moving obstacles are not implemented yet. I’ve heard that it is on the to-do list though.

sorry to jack this post but where may i find some tuts on fluids…

bingomanatee: If you’re on linux, they have a testing build that has an early implementation of using animated objects with fluids here: http://www.blender.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7645

Koshoki: Check the links at the end of this article: http://www.blender.org/cms/Fluids_simulation.675.0.html


Thank you! I am loving these new features!

The water simulation which I have played with for hours is amazing in the proof of concept level, but it really has very specific and limited applictions without being integrated with the animation system.

bingomanatee: They’re currently implementing the use of animated obstacles with the fluid simulation. There’s a Linux testing version of this new feature in the Blender.org Testing Build Forum.
