To Victor Gonzalez, Ignacio Vargas and Angel Tena for the creation of the RealFlow software application. RealFlow was the first widely adopted, commercially available, easy-to-use system for the simulation of realistic liquids in motion picture visual effects.
REAL FLOW, Rendering Tookit: Next Limit Technologies is proud to announce a new toolkit for shading RealFlow™particles in large quantities through RenderMan™ renderers. These tools solve the problem of shading particles using two different approaches. The first approach is focused on generating procedural geometry at render time, and the second approach is a ray-marching technique that samples an implicit volumetric representation of the fluid through Level Set methods.
