Quote from: freelancah on March 05, 2012, 07:39:03 pmPersonally haven't used for such thing but here's mostly why..As far as I know Realflow doesn't have any rendering capabilities so what you would have to do is use the plugin to import your simulation into a 3D package. This would be either: 3D max, maya, Lightwave, Houdini, Softimage or C4D.What you would need to do is:-Bake the terrain you made in terragen to .obj for simulation-simulate the scene in realflow-export particles that you simulated for the waterfall into 3d package of your choice-render the waterfall with the right materials-composite renders with terragen OR render the whole scene including terrain in the 3d package of your choice.The only way you can get your waterfall into terragen is to bake the particles to a mesh. Waterfall made of a mesh wont look good, so the only solution is the above. Ofcourse you can get good looking running water by baking to a mesh but the splashes, foam and whatnot better be particles.An alternative solution: I think I read earlier that you are studying houdini, so I assume you have the free apprentiece version. Houdini can simulate the particles for you, it also has flipfluids for flowing water. And ofc its free.
