Aviation Cocktail Video Recipe

I wanted to make a cloud themed video recipe for the Aviation cocktail. The goal was to reveal the liquid-filled martini glass after a lighning-flashing tornado appears and merges from the sky and ground.

Martini glass images below are rendered in Renderman.

Modeled and simulated with nParticles in Maya.

This project is in the very early R&D stages, but close on my to-do list.

Here's a link to the last Cocktail Video Recipe I made in 2014.


I wanted a fancy, unusually shaped martini glass. Some test renders:

The "liquid" was the PXRLMGlass shader.

That's it! Thank you for viewing.
