Fluid Channel Gradient Back in Action

In LightWave 3D, the concept of "Fluid Channel Gradient Back in Action" refers to the utilization of gradient parameters within the dynamics of fluid simulations, specifically in the context of channel and flow control. This technique leverages gradients, which are essential for defining variations in properties such as density, viscosity, and velocity across different regions of the fluid. By adjusting these gradients, artists can achieve highly realistic fluid behaviors that mimic real-world fluid dynamics. For instance, a fluid channel's gradient can be manipulated to create effects like varying fluid speed within a stream or differences in material properties like oil mixing with water.
