These are some early tests of the affect of different settings on the fluid simulation.
As a back burner project I’ve been experimenting with creating jupiter cloud bands that are truly fluidic. Its very difficult to keep the multiple bands separate, so I’ve been testing just the interaction of just two bands. The Kelvin–Helmholtz instability is a fascinating topic to focus on, but its heavy to simulate and difficult to predict.
