First, we’d like to introduce the new xpDynamics Tag, which is fully integrated into the X-Particles system and works with Fluids, Smoke, Fire and Constraints. Dynamic Objects can be controlled and art-directed using X-Particles Emitters, Modifiers, Questions & Actions and Data Mapping.
Another massive new feature is xpShatter, which allows you to break apart any Scene Object. You can use Objects, Splines, Particles and Point Generators to control Shattering and it works in perfect harmony with our new xpDynamics feature.
We’ve also added a couple of great new features to Fluids. Create realistic crown splash simulations with xpSplash. This combined with xpSheeter, our new modifier to generate thin film particles means X-Particles fluids just got even more realistic!
Not forgetting xpQuickTools, a one-click solution in setting up commonly used X-Particles scenes and settings. Giving you 25 scene presets, guaranteed to speed up your workflow during production.
Alongside these new and exciting additions we’ve updated some of our existing features, and of course, done many bug fixes. Take a look at the full feature list.
Remember, you will only receive this release if your Maintenance is up-to-date.
