tyFLOW Tutorial — Sand Granular Solver (3DS Max 2019 VFX)

In this new tyFLOW tutorial: We’re going to focus on creating realistic effects with the granular sand solver in this tyFLOW tutorial.

I want to dig into how to simulate sand, dirt and take advantage of the granular sand solver in tyFLOW to create realistic chunks of sand that break apart and form shapes and react realistically to breaking up and simulated impacts inside of tyFLOW. Please subscribe to the channel, so you don’t miss out on any upcoming tutorials and training.

If you want more of these videos, please leave a comment and let me know. Even simply typing “YES” to let me know to focus more specifically on tyFLOW, or what subjects / software you would like to see covered. Thanks so much and enjoy the tutorial I hope to build a much more in-depth lesson on this subject soon

Thanks, guys!
