This page lists all processes that create and destroy the different FLIP liquid particle types, including conversions between particle types.

Liquid


Simulated when: Simulator Output rollout Liquid Grid/Particles enabled

Birth:

Life:

  • At places where the liquid velocity gradient is high, creates Foam particlesRequiresFoam is simulated
  • At places where the liquid surface has sharp edges, creates Splash particlesRequiresSplash is simulated
  • At places where the liquid is in free fall, creates Splash particlesRequiresSplash is simulated + Simulator Splash rollout By Free Fly > 0
  • On contact with a Solid geometry, creates WetMap particlesRequiresWetMap is simulated + geometry has Wetting property

Death:


Foam


Simulated when: Simulator Output rollout Foam Particles enabled + Simulator Foam rollout enabled

Birth:

  • At places where the liquid velocity gradient is highRequiresLiquid is simulated
  • When Splash particles die on entering the Liquid volumeRequiresSplash is simulated + Simulator Splash rollout Foam On Hit > 0
  • From any Source (Source Particles enabled + Source Particle Type = Foam)

Death:


Splash


Simulated when: Simulator Output rollout Splash Particles enabled + Simulator Splash rollout enabled

Birth:

  • At places where the liquid surface has sharp edgesRequiresLiquid is simulated
  • At places where the liquid is in free fallRequiresLiquid is simulated + Simulator Splash rollout By Free Fly > 0
  • From any SourceRequiresSource Particles enabled + Source Particle Type = Splash

Life:

  • On free fall, splits into several smaller Splash particles RequiresSimulator Splash rollout Splash to Mist > 0
  • On movement, creates Mist particles and decreases its Particle SizeRequiresMist is simulated + Simulator Splash rollout Splash to Mist > 0
  • On death due to entering the Liquid volume, or due to contact with a geometry, creates Liquid particlesRequiresLiquid is simulated + Simulator Splash rollout Affect Liquid > 0
  • On death due to entering the Liquid volume, creates Foam particlesRequiresFoam is simulated + Simulator Splash rollout Foam On Hit > 0

Death:


Mist


Simulated when: Simulator Output rollout Mist Particles enabled + Simulator Splash rollout enabled + Simulator Splash rollout Splash to Mist > 0

Birth:

Death:


WetMap


Simulated when: Simulator Output rollout WetMap Particles enabled + Simulator Dynamics rollout Wetting enabled

Birth:

Death:
