How to use multipass rendering for Solid To Liquid

Solid To Liquid Tool

Allow you to easily create a transitioning effect of solid to liquid form and few other functionality.

 
Choose between three different shape modes which include text, preset, or custom.
Two different transitioning modes allowing you to set step or melt for the transition effect.
The “Auto Animate” option that creates animation without the use of any keyframes at all.
 

The Solid To Liquid Tool can also be used to create a demolition or destructive effect as well, using the same physics as the liquid effect.

    Great job et très bon plug-in!
    Est-il possible d’utiliser d’autres formes qui ne sont pas exclusivement des splines ou des groupes splines, tels que les bords des objets?
    Merci d’avance

    • Merci!
      J’ai l’intention d’améliorer encore plus cette outil, pour supporté la géométrie par exemple.
      Mais pour l’instant il ne supporte que les splines en “custom shape Mode”.

    Hi Mustapha,

    I bought the solid to liquid tool and I really love it. I’d like to use it with sweep and loft nurbs though. Will these be included in a future release (hopefully soon)? Of course being able to use it with regular geometry would be awesome as well 🙂 Also, is it possible to change the shape of the falloff?

    Cheers…

    • Hi Bill,
      Thanks for the feedback. I noted these various points, I do my best to make this tool even better.
      In the first update i work on geometry integration, and after that I review your other proposals.

  • Ty Emery says:

    This looks like a really great plugin but I am reluctant to buy as I’m not 100% sure it’s what I’m looking for… Can this not be used with regular geometry? Can the plugin only be used with text?

  • Ty Emery says:

    That’s good to hear Mustapha, thanks for the reply!

  • Bill Busse says:

    Wow!!!! The geometry integration looks absolutely amazing! Can’t wait for the upgrade!

    Hello Mustapha,
    tout d’abord bravo pour ces précieux outils qui vont simplifier la tâche de nombreux utilisateurs de c4d (dont moi-même).
    Je viens d’acheter et d’installer solid to liquid tool et je rencontre un problème, je n’arrive pas a faire fonctionner le multicolor. C’est une des fonctions qui a motivé mon achat, imagine mon désarroi 😉
    Plus sérieusement, aurais-tu une solution à me donner, j’ai peut-être oublié une manip…
    Merci encore et j’espère a très vite
    Patrice

    • Désolé pour ça!
      Je viens de voir ça, effectivement le multicolors ne fonctionne pas.
      problème résolu, demain j’envoie une nouvelle mise à jour à tous les clients!
      bien a vous

  • papatd says:

    Merci beaucoup pour la rapidité avec laquelle tu as reglé ça ! J’ai passé la nuit dernière et une bonne partie de la journée a m’amuser avec les paramètres, c’est vraiment un super outil ! Le mode custom fonctionne très bien avec des tracés illustrator, vivement la mise à jour qui supportera la géometrie 🙂
    Encore bravo Mustapha !

    I have bought the 1 version, now how can I free upgrade to version 1.5

  • Thomas says:

    Hi Mustapha,

    first i must say that your plugins are really great.
    I watched some videos and now i´m very impressed.

    But now i want to try some plugins by myself and try to download some trial versions and can´t
    find anything. Where i can download the trial versions?

    Thank you very much

    Thomas

    • Hi Thomas,

      Thank you for your interest in our products.
      I regret to say that there are not have a trial version for our tools, because he has no way to make trial viersion.
      Sorry,

      Mustapha.

  • Thomas says:

    Hello Mustapha,

    thank you very much for your reply.
    It is a pity that there is no trial version.

    But it sounds really weird for me that a Developer can program “plugins” but no trial versions.
    Any Developer can “implement” a trial function. Or my thoughts false?

    How can you explain it? This is really weird.

    Thank you very much

    Kind regards

    Thomas

    • Hello Thomas,

      I liked to provide a trial version, but in this category of plugins there is no trial version because there is no reliable way to protect the product, take look for example on “greyscalegorilla” products there is no trial version.

      Best,

      Mustapha.

  • Thomas says:

    Hello Mustapha,

    thanks again for your fast reply and thank you very much for your time & assistance.

    Don´t get wrong with my view but i have some questions again and thoughts about your reply:

    I think there are enough good protection systems you can use. You can also implement your own system!
    Of course every protection system will be bypassed or destroyed if someone is smart enough.
    But extreme protection isn´t the point. You must not protect a trial version if you can develope a “small” version with restrictions. Some Developers can provide a “restricted” trial version. And it doesn´t really matter if the software has a extreme or weak protection. You know? Just a trial time restriction or a version with “function restrictions”. You know this? It is just a suggestion and my view.

    Sorry, but the argument, at greyscalegorilla also no trial versions available, isn´t really a argument.
    Do you jump the Hivemind?

    Well these are my thoughts and suggestions. Your products are good and i will buy it because the products aren´t very expensive. I never would support Greyscalegorilla or other companies which doesn´t provide trial versions. I mean “expensive” plugins. Your plugins are okay and the price for all are also okay.

    I respect you and your work. It is a pity that you can´t provide some trial versions, but 50,00 € for all plugins are okay. It is a fair price. I like to support “small” companies or private people like you.

    Don´t get wrong with my criticism and my view. It is just my view and my thoughts.

    Thanks

    Kind regards

    Thomas
