Interactive Preview

This video tutorial describes how to apply the fast interactive preview capability of the Hydrodynamics Module to preview any object, even if it is not meant to be used for a hydrodynamics simulation. This technique allows a faster inspection of an object varying the viewing angle interactively. Furthermore, the magnitude of the velocity distribution can be visualized similarly. The application of filters allows an easy way to assess and analyze the setup before actual rendering in the Render Module.
