~ see preview movie of fly-through ~
This is a fluids simulation created in Maya 2010. No external plugins needed to render scene.
The fluid clouds are animated over time and a fly through camera has been included in file. See Quicktime movie.
The fluid containers can be duplicated and moved, rotated or scaled as you wish. To extend the scene duplicate the foreground containers and move back repeating until you reach the desired depth of scene.
Rendering is extremely quick at about 55 seconds per frame on an extremely slow machine.
This scene is great for flying an airplane through the clouds. To change the background color, simply change the camera environment color.
