This shattered glass effect was created using Houdini’s integrated dynamics environment which allows rigid body and fluid solvers to simulate as part of one system. The results were then rendered with caustics using Houdini’s PBR [Physically-based rendering].

Always impressed by this one, Stephen - great stuff. It's got the sexy party value that blows much of the competition fluids stuff out...of..the...water oh hell I made a pun. 
 
The hip for this going to be posted anytime soon? 
 
Cheers,

Thanks for the positive feedback! The files are pretty big! I'll see if I can find a way to get a reasonable size download when I get the time, though if I do, you may have to settle for no geometry cache.

this is the real realistic RB-Solution i ever seen ... 
i worked for weeks on this, but mine convinced not so much ?!?! 
 
OK, is there any way or chance to download your "work" (hip-File) ???!!!??? 
It would be a delusion !!! ;-) 
 
OR if it is to big in size -> short Movie or PDF of the work (the greatest parts ...) 
 
I hope i (or we all) read a "positive" answer from you, best regards 
GF 
 
excuse my perfect Denglish ;-)
