Pouring Zinfandel Scene


This is a slightly different pouring scene from that presented in the Exuberant Zinfandel Static Mesh Model.  Here the scene is a conventional full-bodied pour with the bottle tilted at a sharp angle, perhaps more than half the wine has been poured out earlier. The wine is coming out of the bottle in large volume.

This Realflow simulation begins with a set of Dyverso Fluid Solver particles already entering the glass, and continuing for 120 steps. At the 120th step, the glass is quite full, and the liquid is starting to spill from the top of the glass.

The objects in the scene have custom Maxwell Render materials applied to them.

The short medium-quality video that can be viewed below uses these materials, and has a small HDRI file in the background and for illumination. This video was made with the Maxwell Render facility within Realflow.


The Pouring Zinfandel Scene uses a typical Zinfandel bottle from a well-known maker of this type of wine, and a very high resolution Zinfandel-style glass.

The Realflow simulation begins with a cached set of particles in the bottle that are beginning the pour into the glass. It extends for 120 steps, reaching a point where the glass is more or less full.

This is an very lively pour – the pouring wine has a lot of vitality.
