Maya Fluid

Part of my project into colour and light is creation of dynamic effects in Maya. Here are my first experiments.

There is room for improvement, of course, but not bad for a first attempt!

If anyone is wondering, you create a 3D fluid container with emitter and play around with the settings. The main ones to look at are Contents Details, they are the juicy bits that will dictate how your fluid moves in a space. The second most fun bit is the Shading menu, which is where you pick colour and lighting options. All very fun. I'm looking forward to exploring it more!
