FLIP Fluids Demo Addon
The FLIP Fluids Demo addon is a very limited version of the full release addon. The demo will only allow you to run predefined scenes at preset resolutions called test cases. The demo will still allow you to playback and render your test case simulation. This version of the addon was used during the beta to test the simulator on beta testers' machines and diagnose hardware compatibility issues.
The FLIP Fluids Demo Addon may be downloaded here (flip_fluids_demo-0.0.4d-Win-OSX-Linux.zip).
The FLIP Fluids Demo Scenes may be downloaded here (flip_fluids_demo_scenes-0.0.4d.zip).
How to Run a Demo Test Case
This guide will detail how to run a demo test case.
1. Install the FLIP Fluids Demo addon
The FLIP Fluid Demo is a specialized version of the addon that will help you run predefined simulation scenes. The demo addon can be found inside the FLIP Fluids Demo Package.
Warning: Only one version of the FLIP Fluids addon may be installed at a time. If you currently have another FLIP Fluids addon installed, it must first be uninstalled.
2. Select a test case scene
Select a test case simulation scene (.blend file) to run. The test case scenes can be found inside the FLIP Fluids Demo Package. You will find descriptions of each demo scene here.
3. Open and run a test case scene
Open the selected test case scene. If the FLIP Fluids Demo installed correctly, you should see the test case panel on the right side of the screen under the Blender Physics Properties menu.
4. Export test case results
If you have encountered an error or the simulation stopped unexpectedly, you should export your test case results and let us know that the test case failed. You may let us know by messaging us on the Blender Market or emailing us at flip.fluids[at]gmail.com. If you are unsure if the test case ran successfully, feel free to send us the results and we can look over them for you!
