Create a splash effect in RealFlow

In this article, I’m going to demonstrate how to build an ocean scene; one where the sea has been struck by something large, like a meteor or a comet in an action-packed 3d movie. To make the tutorial easier to follow I’ve used simple geometry, but the same process would work for more complex objects – the only difference would be the number of daemons and the time taken to simulate. 29 free 3D models Here we will work with RealFlow’s versatile Crown Daemon, which enables you to create, customise, and fine-tune your crown splashes. 01. Set up your file If you don’t save regularly, you’ll regret it Everybody has their own way of storing files, but saving regularly and taking control of your files is vital. You can let RealFlow specify paths for your project, but I suggest choosing a location yourself. I use a second drive, which I back up regularly. Double check that Export Central also points to the same place. 02. Create a plan of attack Split your design concept into layers Before you start, work out what your pipeline will be; this will save you time later on. For this project I’m going to work…

Wireframe Prototype

In this assignment, you will look at wireframe prototyping for interactive applications on the web and mobile. These low fidelity mockups are used in the early stages of the design process to concentrate on the interaction design, navigation, and basic layout. They are intended to help you evaluate a preliminary design, not a finished version. You will be restricted to black and white schematic designs, with no high fidelity graphics or typography involved. Design The purpose of the website is to make it easier for people who are shopping. Some of the basic functionalities of it are: Importing recipes to generate an ingredients list Add and update regular grocery lists These are the primary actions in the wireframes, that were put into this prototype. Additional features like managing the user’s profile and settings were not designed due to time. However, those screens would have allowed users to managed their account and accessibility settings. Other features that were considered, but not added, was allowing multiple people to edit and add to the grocery lists. However, this would be helpful for families, roommates, or situations involving multiple people. At the beginning of the design process, I drew out a basic sitemap taking into account the…

Court order could hamper Facebook VR plans

ANALYSIS: (Reuters) – Facebook’s big ambitions in the nascent virtual reality industry could be threatened by a court order that would prevent it from using critical software code another company claims to own, according to legal and industry experts. Last Thursday, video game publisher ZeniMax Media asked a Dallas federal judge to issue an order barring Facebook unit Oculus from using or distributing the disputed code, part of the software development kit that Oculus provides to outside companies creating games for its Rift VR headset. A decision is likely a few months away, but intellectual property lawyers said ZeniMax has a decent chance of getting the order, which would mean Facebook faces a tough choice between paying a possibly hefty settlement or fighting on at risk of jeopardizing its position in the sector. For now, Facebook is fighting on. Oculus spokeswoman Tera Randall said last Thursday the company would challenge a $500 million jury verdict on Feb. 1 against Oculus and its co-founders Palmer Luckey and Brendan Iribe for infringing ZeniMax’s copyrighted code and violating a non-disclosure agreement. Randall said Oculus would possibly file an appeal that would “allow us to put this litigation behind us.” She did not respond…
