The pages of the → "Configure" section give you a quick overview of the most important settings and how to set up RealFlow quickly.
But, there is also an extensive preferences section under File | RealFlow > Preferences:
- Preferences are global and valid for every scene. Most of the simulation-related parameters can be overwritten for each new project, e.g. under → "Simulation Options" or RealFlow's → "Scale Options".
- The window is subdivided into several topics which are accessible via the tree structure on the left.
Below you find direct links to the individual parameter references with detailed explanation:
