ALL-IN-ONE FLUID DYNAMICS FOR MAYA ARTISTS

POWERFUL

Phoenix FD is the all-in-one fluid dynamics plugin for Maya. Simulate realistic fire, smoke, liquids, ocean waves, splashes, spray, mist and more.

ARTIST-FRIENDLY

Built for 3D artists who want to create fluid dynamic effects that are fast to set up and easy to control.

INTERACTIVE

Preview and render interactively in the viewport. Fine-tune simulations on the fly.

CREATIVE CONTROL

Create all types of physically-based fluid effects with smart controls for refining, retiming and rendering simulations.

SMART INTEGRATION

Phoenix FD is integrated seamlessly with Autodesk Maya and optimized to render with V-Ray.

COMPATIBILITY

Supports industry standard tools and formats like Alembic and OpenVDB.

QUICK START: BASIC LIQUIDS

By the end of this video and tutorial, you will be able to create your own liquid simulation, understand how the simulation interacts with other objects, and know the basics of editing a number of primary settings for a sim. Full tutorial notes with downloadable assets available on our docs site.

WHAT'S NEW

New in Phoenix FD for Maya
QUICK PRESETS

New toolbar with presets for fire, smoke and liquid simulations.

FORCE CONTROLS

Art direct and control simulations with forces like wind, mesh attraction and more.

PATH FOLLOW

Create simulations that follow a path along a spline.

Phoenix allows us to rapidly simulate Fire and Smoke effects for projects with short deadlines and iterate looks without leaving Maya - saving valuable artist time.

SMOKE, FIRE & EXPLOSIONS

Create all types of fire and smoke effects with Phoenix FD’s powerful adaptive dynamics engine.

INTERACTIVE SIMULATIONS

Fine-tune simulations interactively in the viewport with Phoenix FD’s GPU-accelerated preview.

REFINE SIMULATIONS

Increase simulation resolution and add detail without changing overall shape or behavior.

SIMULATION RETIMING

Speed up or slow down simulation playback. Perfect for slow motion effects.

CASCADE SIMULATIONS

Create a series of simulations that trigger and interact with each other.

EMISSION SOURCES

Use a wide range of customizable emission sources – animated meshes, texture maps and particles – to drive complex simulations.

VORTICITY

Simulate highly-realistic and complex vorticity effects with full control over large-scale vortex strength and ultra-fine details.

TURBULENCE

Perfect for generating small wisps of smoke and steam.

PARTICLES

Render particles as bubbles, drops, points, or fog.

OCEAN SIMULATIONS

Easily create ocean surfaces that never repeat using procedural ocean displacement. Preview and render the ocean surface without simulating cache files.

WAVE FORCE

Transition from a procedural ocean surface to detailed wave simulations.

OPTIMIZED RENDERING

Render photorealistic fluids and volumetric effects using V-Ray's optimized Phoenix FD shader.

*Simulation Licenses allow you to run different simulations in parallel via render managers such as Thinkbox Deadline and Backburner. However, currently you cannot distribute a single simulation over multiple machines.

List prices do not include taxes, dongle and shipping.
Supported platforms: Autodesk® Maya® 2014 or later (64-bit).
