Versatile dynamics simulator that seamlessly integrates with Autodesk 3ds Max and V-Ray.
Chaos® Phoenix is capable of a wide range of effects including fire, smoke, liquids, flames, explosions, rigid body simulations, ocean waves, mist and splashes to list just a few. Quick presets and fast setup make it easy to get started, and its powerful simulation engine offers complete control over more complex effects.
Chaos® Phoenix is an all-in one solution for fluid dynamics. Simulate fire, smoke, liquids, ocean waves, splashes, spray, mist and more.
Built for 3D artists who want to create dynamic FX using quick presets, fast setup and intuitive controls.
Preview and render interactively in the viewport. Adjust simulations on the fly.
Create all types of physically-based fluid effects with fast, flexible controls for rendering, retiming and refining simulations.
Integrated seamlessly into 3ds Max and optimized to render with Chaos V-Ray®.
Compatible with top industry tools such as OpenVDB, Alembic, Krakatoa and thinkingParticles.
Quick start: Basic liquids
This tutorial will explain how to create your own liquid simulation and the basics of editing some of the main settings of the sim. Full tutorial notes with downloadable assets available on our docs site.
Phoenix 4, update 4 introduces features and improvements including collision between Active Bodies, Color Absorption, and Massive Wave Force, to let artists achieve production-quality simulations in less time.
This update is also Autodesk 3ds Max 2022 compatible.
