SOFIA, BULGARIA — Chaos Group has released a new version of its grid-based simulator Phoenix FD. Version 2.0 improves on speed and flexibility with several new features.
With a new and improved core, Phoenix FD 2.0 is capable of generating particles for foam and splash simulations. This new technology increases realism in liquid simulations.
The new release comes with a new particle shader that allows users full control when creating foam and splashes. In addition Version 2.0 includes an enhanced preview, supporting diffuse color shading and lighting directly in the viewport. GP-based renderings can be saved automatically as PNG files, allowing users to preview simulations without the need to render on the CPU.
