The dynamics of phase separation in multicomponent bilayer fluid vesicles is investigated by means of large-scale dissipative particle dynamics. The model explicitly accounts for solvent particles, thereby allowing for the very first numerical investigation of the effects of hydrodynamics and area-to-volume constraints. We observed regimes corresponding to coalescence of flat patches, budding and vesiculation, and coalescence of caps. We point out that the area-to-volume constraint has a strong influence on crossovers between these regimes.
