Smoke is one of the new things in 2.5 so it's a hot topic at the moment.

Blender is calling me from Messiah Studio.  I can vaguely here its voice, "Love me.  I rock.  Hurry.  Learn me, before you die an old geezer."

Hey, did you hear that Blender will be moving to 2.5 Alpha 1 pretty soon?  This means the GUI will be stable...onto other cool things. like modeling and animations!!

Particles and fluid are another couple of hot topics with Blender.  Even professional animators have considered Blender as part of their set of tools.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Here's one of the water sims I did with Blender. I have done quite a few.

This one is my most popular item on Flickr. I have seen links to it from all over the world.

It's not that hard to do. But I can put something together.

If you know of a link explaining it, like a tutorial, I'd be interested.  No need to go to a lot of trouble.

I've messed around with fluid as well, it's lots of fun. njeneb have you used the fluid control feature where you can take control of the fluid, pretty powerful stuff.

Here are a couple of Blender fluid animations I did with fluid control.

The splash onto the cube is neat.  8)   I tried to make text melt into a puddle. I was then going to reverse the image sequence so the water formed the text. The high settings to get the correct detail went right through my memory limit.

I think I may try it again when I get a new computer. I have decided that 12 GB is necessary. That would be enough for Terragen 2 and Blender for a year or two. When you start getting 24 GB or 32 GB, the cost of the system rises dramatically. Plus, if I went for 24 GB+ I would want the high end I7 processor; most high cost.

Anyway, it's time to fix Ulco's roof.
