In this series of lessons, we will learn how the RealFlow RenderKit can be used inside of Maya. The RealFlow RenderKit is an extremely powerful set of tools for rendering RealFlow particle data directly within our primary 3D application. With the RealFlow RenderKit, we have the ability to control the size and shape of our rendered particles, we can increase or decrease the number of particles that are rendered, and we can also shade our particles based on RealFlow magnitude data. Using the RealFlow RenderKit, we can also generate meshes around our particles at render time, eliminating the need to mesh our particles inside of RealFlow. During this course, we will also discuss how RealFlow particles can be rendered as volumetric clouds, as well as learning how to import RealFlow displacement map sequences into Maya for Rendering. Software required: Maya 2010 and higher, RealFlow 5 and higher.

Introduction and Project Overview [Autogenerated] Hi. I'm kinda with digital tutors, that next limit certified training partner. In this series of lessons, we learn how the rial flow render kit can be used inside of my, um the river render kit is an extremely powerful set of tools that allow us to render real flow particle data directly with our three D application. So with the real flow render kit, we have the ability to control the size in the shape of our rented particles. We can also increase or decrease the number of particles that are rendered, and we can even shade are particles based on real flow magnitude data. So using the real flow render kit, we can also generate meshes around our particles at render time. Now, this eliminates the need for us to have to mash are particles inside of real flu. So during this course will also discuss how real flow particles could be rendered as volumetric clouds as well was learning how to import real flow displacement maps sequences into Maya for rendering. So with that will go ahead and get started on our next lesson.
