The first movie to use computer software to simulate the properties of water was Dreamworks' Antz (USA, 1998). Prior to this, computer-generated fluid effects were drawn, frame by frame, using graphics programs.
Realistic water effects require powerful, physics-based computer simulations - at the timeAntz was released, the only detailed studies of fluid dynamics were being carried out by scientists at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, USA, researching the flow of particles after a nuclear strike.
