*Update - Extended with 10s animation
CHOPs read the music and create triggers that drive the scale of source, density, color, divergence and temperature volumes in SOPs that then controls a pyro sim in DOPs. The pyro sim mixes the colors by advecting the color field with the velocity field. Rendered in PBR. I have nothing to do with the actual song, just a good one.
