流体模拟软件next limit realflow 2014 简称RealFlow是专用于水面波浪的模拟，如海面、落入物体后水面泛起的涟漪、行驶在水中的船(包括破浪泛起的粒子水花和产生的水面拖尾)，能够完成的项目包括：物体落入水面后激起波浪，并且随水面上下波动，还能产生溅起的水花。粒子落在水面上泛起的涟漪。在水面上快速运动的物体产生尾迹、水花和波浪，常用于船只的航行模拟。表现动态、自然波动的水面，如湖泊、水池、海洋等，还能产生海水拍岸溅起海浪水花的效果。
RealFlow没有提供任何照明和渲染功能。你可以通过调节粒子流的UV坐标来拖拉纹理，从而创建各种纹理效果。你可以为网格创建UV坐标，并且创建 “Wet Texture Maps” （打湿纹理贴图）。它可以创建非常丰富和真实的纹理效果，但不能在传统的场景中进行纹理贴图。通过为软件重写流体解决方案，现在的模拟速度提高了20%到 30%。程序可以更好地处理多处理器系统和巨大的内存分配。最具创新性的功能是“Wet Texture Maps”（打湿纹理贴图）。当粒子碰到表面，它在物体的表面上“绘制”纹理。因此，它可以在表面上留下痕迹或者“打湿”纹理。
Next Limit Software has released the latest version of their fluid and dynamics toolset, RealFlow 2014. This latest release brings changes and enhancements to the UI, a new Hybrido Viscosity Solver, Ocean Force daemon, a refined interactive meshing process, and much more.
RealFlow has been the top fluid-simulation application for well over a decade. The software has been used on countless feature films and can simulate everything from water, to fire, to explosions, rigid-body simulations, particle systems, and more. This latest version focuses on usability - with enhancements as follows:
- Viscosity in Hybrido 2
- RenderKit for Arnold
- UI enhancements
- New Daemons (Sheeter and Ocean Force Field)
- Improved meshing workflow
