Ben Steiger Levine – Sprite Ad (MassMarket)

Director Ben Steiger Levine (effects done at MassMarket) featuring Drake exploding in Sprite soda.

The Effects were made using my earlier fluid simulator (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics tool for ICE).

Looks cool, check it out!

Mesher for the SPH

There are at least 3 different meshers for ICE particles that can be used with the SPH:

And Guillaume Laforge is doing this pretty cool project that constructs a fast scalar field in ICE and passes to the polygonizer in a grid structure.

The coolest stuff for me is that the distance function on Guillaume’s polygonizer is an ICE compound! So you can play with it right there and manage to change the way the polygonizer will weight the surface.

It’s exciting to see all these people developing these tools and they are all compatible with my SPH solver, have fun!

SPH Fluids, looking for testers!

Hello, we are looking for testers to join the SPH fluids simulator for ICE.

This is a free set of nodes for ICE, all you need is register to get access to the testing group, Addon, sample scenes and documentation.

SPH Fluids in ICE

I’ve been working on this SPH (Smoothed Particles Hydrodynamics) fluids simulator for XSI’s ICE.
I did my own collisions logic, integration, substeps, all the physics part, etc… using low level ICE nodes, and now some compiled C++ nodes.
The simulator supports pressure, density, viscosity, tension, collisions and some other stuff.
