Water/liquid filling up in a cup
« on: December 24, 2019, 11:03:47 am »
Hi,

     I have 2 models (one is a plastic container and one is liquid).  Is there a way in Keyshot to animate liquid slowly filling up in the plastic container?   Thanks for the help.

Dont think so... I am missing these functins too, like smoke moving along a wind path or so, or things and liquid following gravity path... That would be very cool feature.

I try always to realize that in after effects or as green screen effect.

While this isn't as straight-forward of an answer as you'd probably hope. There is a method in theory that could work.

Liquid sim in Blender (or other 3d suite with those capabilities) export that animation as an alembic file, import into Keyshot as deformable mesh.

I have done liquid animations this way in the past.

Dmerz III is correct the best way to accomplish this is using  a software like Blender or Maya that has liquid or particle type animation.
Export all alembic cache and Key Shot will be able to read these files, making sure to import as deformable mesh.

Attached is just a sample video of using deformation animation and importing the ABC file in to KeyShot
