Houdini off the Shelf | Flat Tank

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Flat Tank tool from the Ocean FX shelf to interact with an animated prop. To avoid building a huge tank to encompass the distance covered by the prop, you will learn how to parent the tank to the object. This lesson takes you through the various nodes created by the shelf tool and explains the role of each network in generating the fluid simulation and the whitewater.

Renderer: Mantra-PBR
Time Per Frame to Render = Average of around 20 minutes.

Particle Separation 0.023
Tank Size: 10x5x10
Particles for Fluid Simulation: 20-25 million
White Water Particles: 5 million ( it varies throughout the simulation ).

Simulation time: Around 12 hours for both ( Fluid and WW were simulated at the same time, so I don’t have exact statistics per sim ).
