Realflow Destruction Tactics Volume 1

A new standard of excellence has been established with the brand new cmiVFX Realflow training series geared towards the technically inclined independent or resident studio artist. In this series, we will have the chance to work on a conceptually high-end visual effects scene using a plethora of heavily researched techniques to apply a well focused art directed look on a epic, blockbuster quality destruction scenario of a church building. A variety of 3D tools such as FumeFX, Particles and Realflow were used to get the required plan executed with extreme precision while maintaining creative freedom. In this first standalone volume, we will be demonstrating strong rigid and soft body’s simulation tools, as well as its multi-joint control system to create a highly detailed explosion plus destruction of the hero asset due to a simulated rocket hit. In the second standalone volume, there will be an in—depth voyage by means of several particle driven effects accompanied by FumeFx, to create the multiple explosions, debris, dust and impact effects. The techniques used in this series, can be applied to any post production destruction scenario for film and commercial work. Learn step by step, how to create high-end film quality destruction effects using your home PC obtaining assets from the CG programs your already using! The two volumes in this series are being released separately to allow time for the users to collaborate what they have learned with the cmiVFX online community and build their own similar scenes on their own.

Chapter Descriptions

Introduction

In this chapter, we will talk about the church building destruction, the tools were used to get it done, and the strategy required for similar complex tasks.

Fracturing Tools

Initially, a discussion about the fracturing tools within the newest Realflow and their use and limitations will set the pace for the rest of the show.

Destruction Details

The following two chapters will be dedicated to the two major areas of details including the interactivity between soft body & rigid body solvers where they are required. (Iron bars within cement rods are often called Rebar, also, we will add an extra details between fractured objects cracks using a variety of fracturing tools inside Realflow and Rayfire.)

Importing Church Model Data

At this point of the project, we will be importing the Church model data from a 3D application, discussing the scale issues, Realflow axis settings, and other environment related factors which makes it possible to have the most effective simulation time and results.

Multi-Joints Setup

This is the core concept of our scenario, where we will be working on establishing certain connections between different parts of the Church model itself, which allows us to control the destruction style as well the collapse style so that it can be client directed from view.

The Bell

A big metal bell will be added and present during the destruction process. It will allow us to discover other kinds of multi-joints types which are necessary to have it hanging in place, and to be able to simulate it separately after we have the primary church simulation complete.

What’s Next?

Here we will be talking about the next volume “The Church Volume 2”, where we will be studying the side effects (smoke, fire, explosion, debris and dust) of the Church collapse in details, using FumeFX as well as multi particle setups to get the most realistic results and the most believable look.

Coming Soon

The Church destruction tactics Vol.II: The Side effects tactics using FumeFx and particle systems as a (smoke, fire, explosion, debris and dust) detailed simulation workshop.
