Fusion CI Studios created the cg water tornadoes for Engine Room VFX, Hollywood, for The Wizards of Waverly Place (Disney Channel). Fusion created the fluid simulations for the water tornadoes and rendered. These tornadoes were created using a triple concentric vortex rig where the nodes of the vortex were animated procedurally to create an interesting dynamic motion in the axis of the tornadoes. There was a minimum of scripting in the core animation of the fluid. Fusion did custom scripting to make the setups of the vortex rig faster and also applied custom scripting for some post processes for generating spray and sub populations of particles to enhance the meshes. The meshing & rendering was done in Mental Ray using the RealFlow render kit for Mental Ray. The background plate was used for a source of reflections and refractions but the shaders were standard Mental Ray MIA shaders.
