cmiVFX - NAIAD Simulating Liquids Volume 2

In this second volume we are going to analyze more sophisticated NAIAD graphs. With the knowledge acquired in the first Volume and the power of a node based graph editor we will cover topics like fluid targeting, advanced guided ocean and rigid-bodies coupled simulations. In this second volume we are also going to focus on how to render are numbers of particles and meshes through RIB files and freeware software. This is the video you have all been waiting for, so now that you got your feet wet, jump right in!
