News in Phoenix FD 4

Phoenix FD 4 from Chaos Group is an extensive upgrade from its predecessors. Here is a short overview of new features. Click here for a complete list.

  • thinkingParticles integration: Phoenix operators for thinkingParticles are now available, and you can emit fluid via Phoenix sources from thinkingParticles geometries (Phoenix FD 4 for 3ds Max only)
  • New Voxel and Particle Tuners: Change each voxel and particle's properties during simulation, and create or delete particles depending on highly customizable conditions
  • Active Bodies: Basic rigid body simulation with Phoenix liquids, allowing objects to float over liquid or get washed away by floods
  • Tex UVW: Transport texture coordinates along fluids during simulation and use them for advanced render-time effects


Chaos Group products are licensed via an online licensing system. It used to be licensed with hardware lock (USB dongle), but that system is being phased out. Online licensing requires Internet access. Licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed. For offline use, licenses may be checked out for up to 15 days at a time.

In exceptional cases, dongle licensing can still be offered. Contact us for more information.
