Phoenix FD 4 for Maya Workstation Lic. with 1 Sim Node empowers VFX artists to simulate fire, smoke, explosions, liquids, foam and splashes, while offering exceptional flexibility and speed. Phoenix FD 4 for Maya is a hybrid simulation system that includes grids and particles, enabling you to get the best of both worlds. Fully integrated with Autodesk Maya and optimized to render with V-Ray, Phoenix FD 4 for Maya harnesses the power of Chaos Group's rendering engine including proper GI from the generated fluid. And Phoenix FD 4 for Maya is compatible with and supports industry standard tools and formats like Alembic and OpenVDB.

What's New

New Voxel And Particle Tuners
Change each voxel and particle's properties during simulation, and use customizable conditions to delete particles.
Active Bodies
Float your objects over pools or wash them away in floods with basic rigid body simulation for Phoenix liquids.
Transport texture coordinates along fluids during simulation and use them for advanced render-time effects.
Standalone Cache Preview Tool
Load AUR, VDB and F3D cache files, preview them and save image sequences.
Foam Texture
Create procedural foam coloring of ocean waves without simulation.

Key Features

Liquid, Splashes & Foam
With Phoenix FD 4 for Maya you can create realistic liquid simulations with splashes and foam directly in 3ds Max.
Smoke, Fire & Explosions
Create any type of fire and smoke effects with Phoenix FD 4 for Maya's powerful, adaptive-grid dynamics engine.
Interactive Simulations
Fine-tune simulations interactively in the viewport with Phoenix FD 4 for Maya's GPU-accelerated preview.
Refine Simulations
Increase simulation resolution and add detail without changing overall shape or behavior.
Perfect for generating small wisps of smoke and steam.
Render particles as bubbles, drops, points, or fog.
Simulate highly-realistic and complex vorticity effects with full control over large-scale vortex strength and ultra fine details.
Emission Sources
Use a wide range of customizable emission sources – animated meshes, texture maps and particles – to drive complex simulations.
Optimized Rendering
Render photoreal fluids and volumetric effects using V-Ray's optimized Phoenix FD shader.
Cascade Simulations
Create a series of simulations that trigger and interact with each other.
Simulation Retiming
Speed up or slow down simulation playback. Perfect for slow motion effects.
Ocean Simulations
Easily create ocean surfaces that never repeat using procedural ocean displacement. Preview and render the ocean surface without simulating cache files.
Influence simulations with forces like wind, spline follow, mesh attraction and more.
Simulation Licenses
Use Phoenix FD simulation licenses to submit jobs over the network to Deadline and Backburner.
