Simulation of Water and Oil for Explainer Videos
For many technical products or industrial plants, oil lubrication or water cooling are an essential feature of their function.
For example, we simulated oil in an explainer video about an invention that lowers the oil consumption of the gearbox, where efficiency stays the same. Or, the visualization of water, where we showed the purification of water in a filter system.
Very often you have to look inside of the product and see how the fluid behaves if you want to realize the benefits of a product. Therefore, it is critical for the understanding that we explain the impact of water or oil on products property.
The simulation of water, oil, or any other fluid is a challenging task for an explainer video. It gets challenging when the liquids have to flow inside of dedicated space. This circumstance happens in technical products all over again. Whether in the form of oil as a lubricant or water for cooling, liquids are always restricted in their movements and must interact with the environment.
We can also represent the water in nature, such as rain, a waterfall or the ocean. The algorithms for the simulation of liquids have been getting better over the years. A truly photorealistic simulation of fluids is extremely time-consuming and is currently only used in Hollywood movies.
