This was a short, in-studio test developed over the span of only two days. The premise was to recreate obstacles in 3D from a photograph, so as to have Realflow fluids interact realistically with them. The 3D objects also provided a basis from which to derive shadows, ambient occlusion and much more. Obviously, we couldn’t animate the 3D objects like the chair, table, etc, as they had to match the locked elements in the photograph but others, such as the bursting door, was added in 3D since it was not apparently visible in the original photograph.
