Phoenix FD for 3ds Max for Universities: Simulate fire, smoke, explosions and liquids.

Phoenix FD 3.1 Academic for 3ds Max -- 1-Year University License
Phoenix FD 3.13 for 3ds Max Workstation Lic. with 1 Sim Node is a powerful tool for fluid simulations. Aimed to meet the needs of VFX artist to simulate fire, smoke, explosions as well as liquids, foam and splashes, it has now become universal simulation software for every production house. Phoenix FD 3.13 for 3ds Max proves to be reliable, fast, and seamlessly integrated into 3ds Max. Offers exceptional flexibility and speed. With an adaptive grid, complete interactivity, a GPU accelerated preview and a fully multi-threaded displacement algorithm it stands out as one of the top solutions for fluid simulations in the visual effects industry. Now, Phoenix FD 3.13 for 3ds Max 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.
