Liquid in a Bottle shader, uses a combination of local and world vertex co-ordinates remapped to a 0 – 1 size over the mesh to create the varying water effects here. The local vertex coordinates are multiplied with the frequency to give multiple waves per period.

Python script written to extract waveform data and animate a digital EQ in Maya. Uses an external script to process the file and then key frames the values.

Houdini Effect to simulate water erosion, sped up many times over for the sake of showing the whole simulation in a reasonable time frame. The idea was to get the effect running as close to real time as possible, which meant avoiding cookie SOP’s. The deformation is mainly carried out using VOP’s instead.
