FAQ

Frequently asked questions:

Yes, you will still own the rights of your submitted animations. We are not requesting exclusive rights to your submitted content. By submitting your content, you consent to the full publication of your content as part of the FLIP Fluids 2021 Customer Reel project and consent that your content may be used in paid advertising of the FLIP Fluids addon.

Yes, you can make up to three submissions.

You may also submit older animations that you have created, but our preference would be for newer creations that have not been publicly posted years ago. For past participants of the Customer Reel 2021, we will not accept re-submitted content and would take preference for something unique or different from what has been submitted before.

We cannot guarantee that your submission will make it into the final customer reel. Due to limited length, we will only be able to choose the best and highest quality submissions.

See this collection of some of the artwork we have seen shared on Twitter (use icon on the bottom of this page)

No, for highest quality, we are requiring that the animation is submitted as a JPEG or PNG sequence packed into a ZIP archive.

Yes, you can render your animation using a third-party renderer or software outside of Blender. We only require that your simulation is created using the FLIP Fluids addon.
