Check out this masterclass on Houdini 9.5 and how to rebuild the fire simulator. Houdini's Fluid Tools offer a powerful simulation environment for visual effects artists. Senior Mathematician Jeff Lait introduces you to the basic building blocks for generating fluids and low level tools that make it easier to control the simulations.
This masterclass covers 1) Flame fronts: Inflation with divergence, contraction with fixed flame speed, curvature dependent flame speed, and DSD-style flame speed; 2) Flame generation: Track particles inside fluid and track crossing age of particles; and 3) Flame sources: Gas sources, solid sources, and combustion models.
