Disney XD asked Roger to recreate the Gravity Falls intro with dogs. I did this shot with Maya’s fluid solver. It’s four different sims, the mushroom cloud dissipation is a little fast, but it needed to reveal the Mystery Shack logo.
I tracked the shot with PFtrack, sim’d it in Maya, and rendered it with Arnold.
Also we had the amazing artist, Kiel Johnson make that Mystery Shack out of cardboard.
