Turning a fluid into an object.

Pretty much as the title says. Is there any way to turn a single frame of a liquid into an object.

A fluid sim is a modifier. You can turn most modifier to mesh by using alt-Ckey



If you are actually wanting to shape the fluid into the form of a specific object, look into the Control object for a fluid sim. That is what it is for. The fluid will conform to the shape of a control object/mesh.

you can also use a script convert one of the frames saved in the cache and use that as your mesh. I used this and shape keys and layer swapping to morph into the shape of my original mesh.

Wow, where is that script?

I always wondered what was in those cache files…

here is the script from the wiki http://www10.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/~sinithue/temp/bobj_import.py

Thank you, I’ll have to give it a try.
