    Simulation & effects

  • Adaptive foam in Bifrost New


    Add froth, foam, bubbles, or other whitewater effects to liquid simulations, creating even more realism and detail in scenes with oceans, beaches, lakes, and stormy seas. With Camera Adaptivity, artists can create high resolution simulations close to the camera where detail is essential, while lowering the computation of foam particles in other areas, resulting in shorter simulation times.

  • Realistic character dynamics


    Create realistic hair, fur, and cloth simulations with Maya 3D animation, modeling, simulation, and rendering software and 3ds Max 3D modeling, animation, and rendering software.

    • Maya adds dynamic realism to characters, with integrated Hair and Cloth systems and the XGen Arbitrary Primitive Generator for creating hair, fur, and feathers on characters, as well as grass, foliage, tress, rocks, and debris trails.
    • High-performance toolsets in 3ds Max for Hair, Fur, and Cloth bring characters to life.
  • Environmental effects


    Create environmental simulations using rigid and soft-body dynamics, fluids, liquids, and particles.

    • The Bifrost procedural effects platform in Maya introduces sophisticated liquid effects.
    • Create stunning dynamic simulations and environmental effects with the event-driven Particle Flow system in 3ds Max. Create a number of effects such as water, fire, spray, and snow, and interact with MassFX simulations.
  • Real-time ragdolls


    Make characters react more realistically to external forces with real-time ragdoll simulations in MotionBuilder real-time 3D character animation software.

    • Mix and blend between traditional animation and dynamically-driven animation to help control how your character reacts.
    • Guide or match your ragdoll simulations between user-defined poses.
  • Procedural effects without scripting


    Create compelling effects and crowd simulations using the intuitive Interactive Creative Environment (ICE) in Softimage 3D animation and visual effects software.

    • Create visual effects and characters faster with ICE, an open, scalable platform powered by a high-performance parallel-processing engine.
    • Use the ICE multithreaded particle system to help create sophisticated crowd simulations with huge numbers of characters who react intelligently to their environment and each other.
