Awesome! Please make some tutorial on Terminator movie
Could you do a tutorial on a volcano erupting spurting lava and fire using Tyflow and Phoneix. Can's find anyone on you tube who has a tutorial on this effect.
Another super tuto Allan. thanks for sharing! Lot's of people like me using mixamo for downloading fun mocap....but the anim is coming in fbx with bones....very difficult for me to convert in catrig or max dummy. how can i play the downloaded .fbx in the same place? ...tyflflow "force biped in place mode" don't work.

but maybe you shouldn't forget to tell us that running the final animation will cause a black hole in our your rooms :D But wait, i did i just see some hidden frames between frame 26 and 27 XD. ,9 Nice Tutorail l^^ Luve

Allan, another great tutorial thank you! You know one effect I'd love to see is a tidal wave destroying a shore line. Or even just a nice stormy ocean scene, I've tried creating a stormy ocean with Phoenix before and I just haven't nailed the look yet.

That step where you align the tyactor is fundamental. Thank you very much, Allan.

Hey there! I've got a nice one for you, Allan. Breaking ice, with the water and everything... how would you do a shot like this?
How about a fukushima type tutorial a tidal wave leading to a meltdown could be a cool tut
Sammy Diaz
When will the end of the thanos decimation be available like the compositing part
Thank you very much for this tutorial but how can you work on this count of particles without any tyflow crashes coz i work on half that count and faces lots of crashes with a super machine
Jean-Claude Conradie
Many thanks Allan, awesome tutorial. There are some basic crowd tutorials but none seem to cover materials. ie. how can I apply materials to multiple characters. Especially if the character has sub materials.
