First Look: Realflow 2013!

Realflow 2013 is coming soon and here’s a look at the new HYBRIDO solver that will replace the current solver.  It looks pretty fast and amazing.  Check out all of the videos below for some sims.

For those of you interested, the new solver is an implicit solver, as opposite to the current one which is an explicit solver. Implicit solver means that just only a few simulation steps per frame are needed, and this means, of course, faster simulations. It means also that “bounciness” is totally removed. The current solver needs many many simulation steps if you want to remove “bounciness”, and even doing it you can’t remove it completely.

Phoenix 2.0 Released!

The new version of Phoenix FD, the powerful tool for fluid simulations, has arrived!

Phoenix FD 2.0 now adds the capability to generate and drag particles based on current simulations. This allows the user to add even finer detail to all types of simulations without the need to increase the simulation resolution.

General Overview Video By Michael McCarthy

Phoenix FD 2.0 for 3ds Max Key Features

Foam and splashes particle shader

Phoenix FD 2.0 comes with a brand new shader for particles. It allows the user to have full control when shading foam and splashes particles generated by the new core.

Simulation of foam and splashes

With the new and improved simulation core, Phoenix FD is capable of generating particles where foam or splashes would usually appear in a simulation. This extraordinary new technology allows the user to further increase the realism of liquid simulations.

GPU Preview improvements

In version 2.0 the GPU preview fully supports lighting and diffuse color shading. Additionally, the renderings can be automatically saved as PNG files in the simulation directory. This seemingly simple upgrade will allow the user to quickly preview their simulation results without having to waste time rendering them on the CPU.

Render particles as smoke

New and improved shading methods allow the rendering of small tightly packed particles as a volumetric smoke. This simple yet powerful solution allows the user to add plenty of detail to their simulations without sacrificing render times.

Particle export

The simulation core has been further improved to be able to efficiently trace particles. This allows the user to add even finer detail to all types of simulations without the need to increase the simulation resolution
