Dynamics & effects

#Bifrost Procedural Effects Platform New

Create photorealistic, dynamic simulation and rendering of liquids.

* Developed from Naiad technology, fully integrated into Maya, and refined for ease-of-use.
* Preview results in the Viewport 2.0 hardware-accelerated display, and render them in the NVIDIA mental ray renderer.
* Choose whether to mesh liquids with a new particle surfacer, or render voxels directly.
* Export particles, voxels, and meshes to a native file format, as well as to selected industry-standard file formats.

XGen Arbitrary Primitive Generator New

Generate curves, spheres, and custom geometry on the surface of polygon meshes to create fur, feathers, foliage, and more.

* Create and groom hair, fur, and feathers on characters.
* Populate large landscapes with grass, foliage, trees, rocks, and debris trails.
* Handle large amounts of instanced data that would slow down a system if loaded in memory.
* Preview the rendered effect interactively in Viewport 2.0.
* Control the appearance and behavior of primitives by setting attributes, painting maps, creating expressions, or using the included XGroom interactive grooming toolset.
* Control long hair by creating guide hairs.
