This Update includes a brand-new addition to the Fused Collection - NeXus, a GPU particle and simulation system that integrates perfectly into the X-Particles ecosystem. NeXus harnesses the power of Vulkan. Our cross-platform particle simulation framework brings fluids, grains, constraints and particle modifiers onto the GPU.
To receive our new plugin, you will need to have either a Subscription or a license in Maintenance. One of the benefits of being in Maintenance is your access to NeXus.
We’ve also introduced a new feature in Taiao. Our new Growth tab gives you control over branches, which can be added dynamically. Fields now work with leaves, flowers and custom objects. Users can animate leaves growing on a tree, driven by Fields.
In addition, MeshTools has an update to mtEdgeSpline, a new offset with count and rotation. Furthermore, the new mtFractal, a procedural fractal tool, enables you to generate intricate fractals using preset patterns. Finally, TerraformFX has a new feature - tfWarp, which distorts the input height field using a low-res control grid of 2D displacement vectors.
We’ve also made bug fixes to increase performance and stability throughout INSYDIUM Fused, which is fully compatible with Cinema 4D 2023.
All licenses in Maintenance and Subscriptions now include a complimentary extra seat*. Single seat licenses can now be used on two machines at once. If your license falls out of Maintenance, the additional seat is removed, another great reason to stay in Maintenance.
* 1 complimentary seat per customer

If you have a Subscription or are in Maintenance, you’ll receive this Update automatically, as long as you have enabled your Online Updater. Alternatively, you can download the latest Update from your Customer Account.
If your license is out of maintenance, visit our shop to buy Fused Maintenance. Once you purchase, you can download our latest Release Update via your Customer Account.
Maintenance is more flexible for everyone; we’ve separated our two products, so you decide what you want to buy.
We want to make things simpler; a new INSYDIUM Fused license is now £500 ex VAT and ships with a 90-day preview of all our additional plugins and Library Assets, but does not include Updates. Fused Maintenance is £250 ex VAT. The combined price has stayed the same as before; it has not increased.
However, we recommend you buy both products at the same time to take advantage of a 15% off incentive offer. Having Maintenance allows you 12 months of access to all additional plugins and Updates, plus many other Maintenance benefits.
For customers with a license purchased before 21st September 2022, click here for Maintenance discounts and more information.

I highly recommend anyone using X-Particles to use it in tandem with Cycles 4D. The bridge between the two allows for some amazing effects and control over the appearance of your particle systems. Being a regular Cinema 4D user also meant that Cycles 4D was fairly easy to pick up and integrate into our workflow. - Matthew Encina Blind.com
Cycles 4d is the render engine I’ve always wanted to have as a C4D artist. It’s a feature rich engine that doesn’t ask you to change the way you work to get the render you want. You can render entirely procedurally, or with image textures. It doesn’t feel like a plug-in at all, it feels like an update. - Casey Hupke
Playing with TP and Xpresso is a thing of the past for me now. - Ash Thorp
Territory use X-Particles a lot when it comes to detailed simulations for feature film UI. The ease of use means we can turn work around quickly without sacrificing a demanding quality bar - David Sheldon-Hicks / Founder and creative director / Territory Studio
Designer-friendly and technically advanced, simply powerful and art direction-able, X-Particles is an integral tool of my workflow, always impressed how Insydium are constantly developing and refining the most important toolset for Cinema 4D. - Motion Designer; Director; Brett Morris
X-Particles is an essential tool in my creative workflow - whether it be for creating daily images or commercial client projects. It allows me to quickly and intuitively throw together visual concepts or drill down into more complex, technical setups. The integrated interactive and video manual are outstanding, and if you can’t get the answers there, the support team are personal and very quick to help out. - Joey Camacho, Raw & Rendered
