Sim slowdown with maya fields - petkovic - 10-08-2015

Hi guys, i notice one strange thing so i wanna to check it out,

when i use some of the maya fields (in my case ) volAxisField, fume sim start to slow down and a lot...

could anyone confirm this, i can post an sample scene....


Re: Sim slowdown with maya fields - petkovic - 10-08-2015

I have just made a simple scene with 2 maya fields,

one is gravity and one is volAxisField

to sim 200f with gravity (cone shape) took me ~30sec

with volAxisField (also shaped as cone) took me ~2.5min???

could anyone plz check this out,

i notice also that sim slows down in the moment when fluid enters the volField

here is a scene (maya 14) with 2 fields as i explained, try to simulate 1st with gravity and then try with volAxis

cheers & thx

Anyone around?


Re: Sim slowdown with maya fields - Thomixioso - 10-30-2015

I have same feeling. But maybe its nature of things, in Maya fluids it is also slower with volumefield.


Re: Sim slowdown with maya fields - petkovic - 10-30-2015

yea, but this is way way toooo slow, im getting like hours of sim when i use vol fields


Re: Sim slowdown with maya fields - sitnisati - 11-03-2015

Hello,

Because of increased velocities in the grid, it takes a bit more for FumeFX to finish, but it also takes some time for the volume field to do its computations.

Thx,

is there are any alternatives, to get the effect of suction?


Re: Sim slowdown with maya fields - sitnisati - 11-04-2015

You're welcome.
I hope that you will find alternative way to do that effect.

I have just notice something interesting Smile

in 3ds ver you made a spline follow!

this is exactly what i need, is there a way to implement into maya? but in v3 ver?

i would be happy even with unstable build, im so desperate atm i have a movie to finish...
thx


Re: Sim slowdown with maya fields - sitnisati - 11-06-2015

Hello,

Actually, the Spline Follow was develped on FumeFX 4 for Maya and ported to 3ds max.
We cannot put it in FumeFX 3, but please email me - maybe we can do something.
