Phoenix FD for Maya

All-in-one Fluid Dynamics for Artists

POWERFUL

Phoenix FD is an all-in one solution for fluid dynamics. Simulate fire, smoke, liquids, ocean waves, splashes, spray, mist and more.

ARTIST FRIENDLY

Built for 3D artists who want to create dynamic FX using quick presets, fast setup and intuitive controls.

INTERACTIVE

Preview and render interactively in the viewport. Adjust simulations on the fly.

CREATIVE CONTROL

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

SMART INTEGRATION

Integrated seamlessly into Maya and optimized to render with V-Ray.

COMPATIBILITY

Compatible with top industry tools such as Alembic, Krakatoa, Stoke MX and OpenVDB.

Quick Start: Basic liquids

Phoenix FD for Maya: Key Features

LIQUIDS, SPLASHES & FOAM

Create realistic liquid simulations with splashes and foam directly in Maya.

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.
