Thanks for tip.  Do you know of any tutorials of the blender's fluid
system?  I have never touched the fluid system before and have googled
around for tutorials but limited resources came up.  So far the best
had been the Siggraph 2006 demo.

The fluid system would involve a couple of animated characters moving
in and out of liquids. They are convinced of blender capabilities but
putting it into Maya pipleline might be a bit tricky/cumbersome and I
am trying to ease it in on the team.

Many Thanks,
Victor Yap.
