    I think you also should model in real world dimension then, setting the domain to proper size but having a huge model in wrong size doesnt seem correct. How can i get better control of the fluid not penetrating the obstacle. Seems quite difficult to get that part right.

    Love Blender, Love how deep it goes, love your tutorials, but fluid sim reminded me why I only use this tool to make models. Had it working great, just needed to change the resolution. Now the resolution has changed the fluid stays as a cylinder and won't budge. Cleared the cache, replaced the meshes, replaced the modifiers, rebooted my PC – still the same result. I think I'll just continue to fake it.

    While rendering an animation with both a fluid simulation and quick explosion, everything seems to be going fine until Blender just closes without warning around halfway through.

    When I try doing a fluid simulation, and I set something to domain, it paradoxically is turned into the fluid, or at least something appears in its place that is a body of fluid and the object I wanted to turn into fluid does not.

    I'm using a newer version of blender and I can't find the place where you recalculate normal's. Can anyone help?

    I have a question.
    Why when I make a box (a cube without one face and with solidify), I press "Add Active" and make another solid cube, why if I press play the second cube won't go inside the first? It just floats above it…

    Hi thank you for the video. I have a problem. When i click "Bake", the fluid simulation bar runs, but the cube doesn't turn into fluid, and when it finishes simulation, I don't get the fluid effect. Does anyone have the same problem? Any idea how to resolve it? Thank you!

    How do you get the domain. I know you just put the cube as fluid in physics i did that but when i baked the domain which was the only way to get a animation the domain was the fluid. But i used a cube as domain so. What do i do

    what you do is good and I am even learning but sometime I just HATE THAT YOU MOVE SO QUICKLY without telling some of the controls you use.

    Thanks for this tutorial mate, it helped me out a lot. I'm new to blender (obviously) and i was struggling on how to fill a pool for my characters. Now i know the easy way to do it, cheers mate.

    This is most good explaination of fluid simulation, before coming to this tutorial I was always meshed up with domain settings, even you can't believe 5-6 hours of continuous struggle to desired results, so I thanks for your such valuable tutorial on fluid simulation, I request you to have complete tutorial on this subject for other controls such as outflow, control, particle etc., if you have already done plz. help to locate that one. Again thanks Andrew

    Andrew, I got totally stuck on 6:38, where you select the inner cup in edit mode with the verticie edge tool selected. How in the heck am I supposed to select the inner cup, the only thing that selects is the outer cup, and when I select that, the bottom is un-selectable?.. Please help

           Hi Andrew, its nice to see ur masterpiece, they are all so wonderful.. im a freshman regarding using blender 2.68a. And im curious about fluid simulation especially  the inflow. Is there a parameter to control the flow? i mean, if i want a more thinner flow and setting low pressure in it.?

    I have a huge problem. when I set the cube as a domain the cube changes into a resent project that I have done and the cube goes away

    thats just a render engine and has nothing to do with the sim. you can do the same using cycles

    I don't know exactly what you mean, but this might help. To re-simulate just click the bake button again, or if you're having trouble with a simulation you've done before, go to the folder where the simulations are being stored and delete them or move them.

    my question is how do I start again do I have to delete cup and everything to start from scratch I am afraid if I save as I have it now It will save the setting of the fluid simulation
    what do I do?

    Hi Andrew I am a newbie your tutorial are one of the best although if you could talk a little slower and say when and what key you press. But the problem I ran into is that after trying the for the first time somehow I lost the sim, anyway I wanted to try again and I thought I cleared. but when I try to bake once again it gives me an error telling that I can only have one domain.
