Let’s start with Flip Fluids water simulation in Blender, in this tutorial released by Kinoshnik, we’ll learn how to make a realistic flood in a hallway in Blender using Flip Fluids add-on easily. Once the scene is animated we will go to render it in Cycles render.

What is the FLIP Fluids addon?

The FLIP Fluids addon is a tool that helps you set up, run, and render liquid simulation effects. FLIP Fluids custom-built fluid engine is based around the popular FLIP simulation technique that is also found in other professional tools such as Houdini, Phoenix FD, Bifrost, and Mantaflow.

The FLIP Fluids engine has been in constant development for over four years with a large focus on tightly integrating the simulator into Blender as an addon. It just feels like a native Blender tool!


RealWater is a photo-realistic water shader for Cycles that packs the power of advanced volumetric shading and improved refraction into one easy-to-use package.

RealWater is engineered to reflect large bodies of water, such as oceans, lakes, rivers, and ponds, but it can be used for much more. That includes Jell-O, fogged glass, and slime!
