Artist-friendly dynamics simulator that seamlessly integrates with Autodesk Maya and V-Ray.
Chaos® Phoenix is an all-in-one dynamics simulator, built for Maya artists who want to create a wide range dynamic FX. 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 the all-in-one fluid dynamics plugin for Maya. Simulate realistic fire, smoke, liquids, ocean waves, splashes, spray, mist and more.
Built for 3D artists who want to create fluid dynamic effects that are fast to set up and easy to control.
Preview and render interactively in the viewport. Fine-tune simulations on the fly.
Create all types of physically-based fluid effects with smart controls for refining, retiming and rendering simulations.
Phoenix is integrated seamlessly with Autodesk Maya and optimized to render with V-Ray®.
Supports industry-standard tools and formats like Alembic and OpenVDB.
Quick start: Basic liquids
By the end of this video and tutorial, you will be able to create your own liquid simulation, understand how the simulation interacts with other objects, and know the basics of editing a number of primary settings for a 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 Maya 2022 compatible.
