- An exceptional increase in the quality of simulations. All new DYVERSO solvers and the addition of GPU acceleration not only speed up simulations, but allow artists to build smooth layered meshes, making resulting simulations more realistic than ever.
- A new direct-to-render feature within the program. This option allows users to import their scene, add fluids, and render them out directly in RealFlow using the most advanced physically-based render engine, Maxwell Render™.
- New tools that give users complete control over their simulations. An enhanced User Interface, new splines nodes, text tools, daemons falloff, crown daemon, and spreadsheets add an extra level of controllability to RealFlow simulations allowing users to achieve the design they want, the way they want it.
- A powerful speed-up compared to previous versions. The combination of DYVERSO solvers and rapid OpenVDB meshing allows users to achieve outstanding results in a fraction of the time, making your simulation and meshing times up to 10x faster.
This RealFlow 2015 version will definitely be a game changer for the majority of RealFlow users and a lot of VFX enthusiasts that have been waiting for this moment to get on board with RealFlow. From the quality and speed of the new Dyverso solvers, OpenVDB meshing and Hybrido enhancements, to being able to finish renders with the new Maxwell Render integration (just to name a few of the amazing features in this version), we think this is a solid release and a new beginning for our product.
