i want to create a fluid simulation, but it didn't work as i expected. I was following this tutorial by CGCookie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B0QM4Cft5c&ab_channel=CGCookie

First, I created a liquid flow object within the domain: enter image description here

Then set the domain like so:

enter image description here

Afterwards i ticked "mesh" and "bake all" for the domain object:

enter image description here

I expected the fluid simulation to play afterwards, but it seems like the domain didn't go invisible like it was supposed to and i can't see any animation.

    $\begingroup$ I would change the flow from “geometry“ to “inflow.“ I have had trouble with that before. $\endgroup$

The liquid domain's voxel size is too big for your inflow object and no liquid can flow out. The voxel size is the little cube in the corner of the domain as explained in the video.

You can either

  • scale up the inflow object
  • or increase the number of Resolution Divisions which creates smaller voxels but longer simulation baking times.
