Key Features

Liquids, Splashes, and Foam

Allows you to create realistic liquid simulations with splashes and foam directly in Maya/3ds Max. 

Smoke, Fire, and Explosions

Phoenix FD's powerful, adaptive-grid dynamics engine lets you create a plethora of fire and smoke effects.


Perfect for generating small wisps of smoke and steam.


Simulate complex, hyper-realistic vorticity effects with full control over large-scale vortex strength and ultra-fine details.

Cascade Simulations

Allows you to create a series of simulations that trigger and interact with each other. 


Influence simulations with forces such as spline follow, wind, mesh attraction, and more.

Optimised Rendering

Use V-Ray's optimised Phoenix FD shader to render photoreal liquids and volumetric effects.
