FumeFX™ 5.0.4 for Maya® release

Posted on July 29, 2019

July 29, 2019 - Sitni Sati releases FumeFX™ 5.0.4 update for Autodesk® Maya®. This update includes GPU Viewport Multiview option that allows artists to view all FumeFX grids in a single viewport. With FumeFX 5 release there were many changes and improvements throughout the simulation core which inevitably led to quite different simulation results when compared to previous FumeFX version. The newly added option to use the FumeFX 4 Solver will allow users to achieve similar results compared to FumeFX 4 with benefits of FumeFX's 5 features. FumeFX 5.0.4 adds more controls and updated preview for Turbulence Noise as well as new Affect Velocity Magnitude Mode. Another great addition is the Parameter Check dialog that allows users to quicky determine which simulation parameters were changed from their default values.
