Take Chaos Group’s new fluid dynamics solution for a spin

We’ve just launched the open beta for Phoenix FD 4, Chaos Group’s versatile fluid dynamics simulator. We’d love you to join the beta and be among the first to experience its groundbreaking new features and productivity-boosting optimizations.


Phoenix FD 4 highlights include:

  • thinkingParticles integration — We’ve added Phoenix operators for thinkingParticles, and you can now emit fluid via Phoenix sources from thinkingParticles geometries.
  • 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.
  • Tex UVW — Transport texture coordinates along fluids during simulation and use them for advanced render-time effects.
  • Plus more! We’ve got plenty of other features coming soon. See the release notes for further information.
