The right move

Hi all 🙂

2

An open source developer should not have any problem in dropping a project for joining another if the second one promises better features, as working in two seperate projects will only make things more difficult and slow and at the end necessarily one of the two solutions has to be dropped. The good thing about being open source is that this is not a race among devs, this is a collaborative work 🙂
So I didn’t have to think twice to make the switch once I had contacted Stephen and reviewed his implementation of Particle Based viscoelastic fluid simulation (that is also an SPH method) based on several reasons:

It’s much more stable
It’s more artist friendly
It avoids duplicate efforts
It speeds up the development

This is not the first time something similar happens to me :), the first was Volumetrics, then Photon mapping (which is currently on hold until some physically correct material system gets added or some future decisions are being made) and now SPH particles so I have experienced that 😉

We are currently working togeither (also with the help of Jahka) to deliver very soon a testing build.

Cheers Farsthary

The right move

  1. In a world where there is so much duplication of effort in open source, it’s refreshing to see a developer willing to think about the good of the users rather than just that *their* pet project.

    The nice thing here is, that because *both* of you started different implementations, we got to look at different ways of doing fluids and then to pick and choose. Too often projects end up stuck with whatever came first. Choice is good. 🙂

    Knowing you Farsthary, this means that now we’ll get both a great fluid solver *and* even more cool new stuff as you come up with it! Groovy.

    I am glad this happened, I think your attitude to opensource is great. I hope more devs will adopt this kind of thinking 🙂

    Btw. it seems you have allready done meshing of the surface? with metaballs?

  3. Great news!

    A particle based fluid system has no domain size limit, just the nuber of particles slowing it down? If so, it’s much better for real animation purposes and large scenes, not just for playing around with fluids!

    Keep up the good work and thoughts like that. Very conspirational. This is friday. Stop the good work and go have a booze. You deserve =]
