Description

In this series of tutorials, we will be learning the process of understanding and simulating a candle flame with the help of Maya fluids. We will be studying in detail the burning of candle flames. We will look at technical theories and discuss the flame's nature as well as its chemical process. We will learn how to blend such principles to CG art and bring the flame out of the wick with the help of Maya fluids. This course will teach the various technical specifications of fluids and how each and every tweak of the settings can be useful to convert the flame simulation into a realistic behavior. We will advance further into understanding the technical attributes of fluids including density, temperature, dissipation, diffusion, and velocity swirl, just to name a few. We will also look at how to bend the flame and have it react to interaction. The end result will take you to the next level of creativity and production workflow understandings.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] and welcome to created 11 sees myself, Panguitch Malik Order certified my profession and Harry goes with my new tutorial on camera flame. In this course, we're going to have a simulation of realistic candle flame with the help of my reports. Some of the key takeaway off learning scores includes the story of reasons behind the burning of can claim understanding the nature of fuel. They roll off week on conditions, sustaining the chemical reactions off course by a plane them with the technicalities of Maya flutes. So by the end of the training course, you will be able to light your cannons even for great celebrating occasions and, of course, adding an element off ethics in your shoulder.
