Hi,

I need some nice bubbles for a nearly finished illustration, so I've checked out
the "Carbonated fluid bubble generator" from the objects collection.


I just dumped a camera and two area lights and a background into the scene (see
below) and added the lines with the example from the .inc file.

However, I can't find a single bubble in the rendered image (tried to fiddle
around with the camera position and lights abit, but still I don't see
anything).

Any suggestions, what could be the problem?

Thanks a lot,

Simone

Hello,

The last line of your code declare only the object, you must call the 
object, add the following to your code:
object {bubbleGenerator}

Ah, I see. Now it works! Thank you very much, Lionel!

The #declare is not really necessary (even though the author of the bubbles code
suggests it.) You can instead just place this in your scene:

mBubbleGenerator(0,0.9,0,0,6.5,0,2.4,2.7,0.0005,0.0006,70,bblTexture)

.... with no object{...} wrapper. This is because, inside the bubble #macro, the
bubbles are in a union{...}. So the macro itself is like an already- #declared
'object', waiting to be used. (However, if you want to translate or scale the
bubbles in your scene, then an object wrapper would be necessary.)

I had not worked with this macro before; it's very interesting and produces a
nice result. But the two values fBblHeightRngS and fBblHeightRngE seem to be
somewhat non-intuitive.
