Fluid simulation in 1990!! Terminator 2

Recommended Posts

Just watched a documentary on how they made Terminator 2 and simply can't wrap my head around how it was made possible back in 1990 to simulate fluid and do precise Mocap... jeez what software were they even using back then? Fast forward 30 years and I still struggle with Real Flow 😂

 

Here's the clip

Their own proprietary software I would have thought. They have the sort of budgets and talent where it is feasible to just code the functionality they need. Whilst nearly all the studios use one of big 4 DCC apps (Maya and Max still winning) the film guys just write extensions to these things to make them do what they need at the cutting edge... years later that becomes a module or plugin set that might get sold off, or watered down and copied and incorporated for the rest of us in future software revisions of the DCC or as stand-alone entities...

Just the fact we can sit in front of our one machine and with one brain manage to turn out anything at all that approaches what the cream of ILM and 100 million dollars got you thirty years ago is pretty impressive. And even more excitingly, in thirty more years we will probably be huddled in front of fires eating rats and sheltering from the climate apocalypse, very much building on the promise of Terminator 2.
