In this RealFlow 2013 tutorial, we'll be taking an introductory look at many of the key features found in RealFlow 2013 with the goal of getting a good understanding of some of the most fundamental concepts and workflows in RealFlow 2013. We'll start by learning how we can set up our RealFlow projects and looking at how those projects are organized by RealFlow. From there we'll learn how to move around the RealFlow interface before starting to work with our first fluid particles and some of the important parameters that will help us control our particles. Some of the other extremely important concepts in RealFlow include scene scale and substeps, so we'll take some time to get a good understanding of how these concepts can be set up and how they will affect our RealFlow projects. Throughout this training we'll take a look at many of the new features found in RealFlow 2013 such as the Relationship Editor, connecting nodes together in the new graph system, using the incredibly powerful Hybrido 2 and, of course, previewing our fluids using the new integration with Maxwell Render, just to name a few. By the end of this tutorial, you'll have a solid understanding of the concepts and workflows in RealFlow 2013. Software required: RealFlow 2013.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, I'm Dan with Digital-Tutors, a Next Limit certified training partner. In this series of lessons, we'll be taking an introductory look at many of the key features found in RealFlow 2013, with the goal of getting a good understanding of some of the most fundamental concepts and workflows in RealFlow 2013. We'll start by learning how we can setup our RealFlow projects, and looking at how those projects are organized by RealFlow. From there we'll learn how to move around the RealFlow interface, before starting to work with our first fluid particles and some of the more important parameters that will help us control our particles. Now some of the other extremely important concepts in RealFlow include scene scale and substeps, so we'll take some time to get a good understanding of how these concepts can be setup, and how they will affect our RealFlow projects. Throughout this course, we'll take a look at many of the new features found in RealFlow 2013, such as the Relationship Editor, connecting nodes together in the new graph system, using the incredibly powerful Hybrido 2, and of course, previewing our fluids using the new integration with Maxwell Render, just to name a few. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of the concepts and workflows in RealFlow 2013. So with that, let's go ahead and get started by taking a look at how we can setup our first RealFlow project.
