For this animation I created a sequence with the breaking sphere and then a second one for the melting effect. Then I combined them using the video sequence editor, by reversing the first part and then playing the second part.

Liquid Experiment 1

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-11-01T11:37:30+01:00

I started playing with the blender fluid simulation

This is experiment 1

no gravity fluid simulation

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-03-22T06:50:32+01:00

This is a sphere of a transparent fluid in a low gravity setting, simulated using the blender fluid simulation

blender particle experiments - meta fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-10-08T04:54:55+02:00

for this part of my blender particle experiments I used a meta-sphere as object for a fluid particle system.

I had some trouble rendering the sketch with cycles, because I got random blobs of metaballs every 5th to 10nth frame, which I had to clean up manually.

Maybe its because the sketch was rendered using a RC for 2.64 - I will retry this with the final release.

blender fluid experiments - text obstacles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-26T05:47:10+02:00

for this part of my blender fluid experiments I turned a textobject into a mesh and used it as an obstacle for a fluid

blender fluid experiments - high viscose fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-22T17:57:19+02:00

For this part of my blender fluid experiments I generated a hight viscose fluid

blender fluid experiments - low gravity fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-19T05:42:02+02:00

For this part of my blender experiments I used the fluid simulator without any gravity.

This is also the first render I did with the new blender 2.64 release candidate

Blender particle experiments - black fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-07T05:06:03+02:00

For this blender particle experiments I made another set of fluid particles that cover a sphere. This time I also animated the particles using ShapeKeys

Blender particle experiments - spherical fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-08-31T16:24:57+02:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I made some fluid particles that are floating around an invisible sphere

To make the particles float on the spherical surface I added a sphere and made it invisible. Then I added a forcefield and set the strength to -1. I turned of the gravity for the particles and made the sphere a collision object.

water dropping from a leaf

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-01-15T08:05:27+01:00

I made a animation with blender, showing some water dropping from a leaf. This took me a while to get it right, because first the water fell througt the leaf. In the end I dublicated the leaf and extruded the copy to make it thicker. I used the copy as the obstacle but made it invisible in the final render.

Also make sure to click "receive transparent" in the shadow block of the leaf material, or else the water will make a solid gray shadow - which makes the leaf that shines trought the water appear dark gray.
