Advanced BLENDER Fluid Dynamics DVD
Learn everything there is to know about Fluids in Blender
(In High Definition)

cmiVFX is proud to announce professional grade training for the Blender community and visual effects artists at large.

Blender is the most reknown open source 3D modeling and animation suite; a freely available tool capable of producing stunning still images and animations. This is the first release in a series of DVD's that will become a definitive resource in professional Blender training. And we are starting with one of the most compelling and in-demand features: integrated fluid simulation.

Partnering with Jason van Gumster, an avid Blender user and active member of the community, we walk you through the intricacies and idiosyncracies of this very powerful tool; destroying cities, turning on faucets, and melting characters along the way. Blender's fluid simulation uses the Lattice-Boltzmann Method, which is attractive due to its simplicity, flexibility, and efficiency. It can, however, be computationally and memory intensive, so we provide tips and tricks along the way to help your simulations bake faster.

About Blender
Blender is an Open Source 3D modeling and animation suite that was initially developed by Ton Roosendaal as an in-house tool for the Dutch animation company he co-founded, NeoGeo. A new company, Not a Number, was spun off to develop Blender as commercial software. Three years later, Not a Number was forced closed its doors. However, by that point, Blender had a huge, enthusiastic, and loyal user base. Ton formed the Blender Foundation in 2002 and struck a deal with investors of Not a Number: If the community could raise 100,000 Euro in 6 months, the Foundation could buy the rights to the Blender source and ultimately open source it. That money was raised in 7 weeks. Since then, Blender has been in the hands of the community and has grown in functionality and usability by leaps and bounds. And the story continues...
