Now available: RealFlow for Cinema 4D 2.0
[permalink] 28.07.2017

RealFlow Cinema 4D 2.0 plug-in plugin Second release of Next Limit Technologies' Cinema 4D fluid dynamics plug-in comes loaded with lots of new features and improvements. The most important novelty is the Dyverso multi-physics solver with three completely new materials (granular, viscous, viscoelastic) and two deformers for rigid and elastic body. All these different materials are able to interact with each other, and all fluid and material types can now be simulated via the GPU for a 3-4x speed boost. RealFlow for Cinema 4D is also even tighter integrated and there are connections to MoGraph, Hair, Takes, Thinking Particles and PyroCluster. The Character module's Point Cache tag lets users bake PLA animation from the plugin's Rigid and Elastic deformers, for example. A wide range of render engines is also supported. [source]

Fracture FX 2.0 for Autodesk Maya
[permalink] 30.05.2017

Fracture FX 2.0 for Autodesk Maya video Procedural demolition plug-in Fracture FX for Maya has reached version 2.0. New version adds a Spring modifier/constraint type to simulate structural cohesion of the demolished structures, as well as the ability to quickly transfer simulations from low resolution to high resolution meshes. This enables to iterate simulations using low resolution, proxy objects before moving to detailed meshes. Fracture FX version 1.x licenses can now be upgraded to version 2.0 at 100 USD, 30 days after the initial release, the upgrade price will increase to 150 USD. New Fracture FX 2.0 licenses can be purchased for 500 USD. [source]

[permalink] 04.04.2017

E-on Plant Factory screenshotE-on software released new Personal Learning Editions of VUE xStream/Infinite 2016 and PlantFactory Producer 2016, along with the new PlantFactory 2016 R2. The new version adds a Stylized Meshing mode enabling to quickly and automatically generate a low polygon envelope version of vegetation models and export models with a small polygon footprint while retaining the actual vegetation visual volume. Stylized Meshing mode can also be used creatively to produce non-photorealistic vegetation. Also new is the billboard leaves functionality with 3-axis rotation, an ideal tool when working with real-time engines. [source]

More Vue 2016 sneak peeks
[permalink] 11.10.2016

N E-on Software Vue 2016 screenshotew videos in the VUE 2016 Leaks series introduce Preset Variations in PlantFactory 2016 allowing users to immediately include subtle differences to their plants; and a brand new terrain modeling technology Heightfield Terrains. This new technology enables to add terrain effects that were previously impossible to achieve, such as hydrological and thermal simulations! Similar to procedural terrains, Heightfield Terrains are based on a function graph, but baked on a fixed-resolution grid. This will give you more flexibility and add more realism to your terrains. Heightfield Terrains are also significantly faster to render! More here. [source]
