Countless blockbuster movies and projects depend on thinkingParticles' limitless ability to recreate advanced physics-based particle effects fully procedural and rule-based.

Now with Subscription Drop 7, the latest update of thinkingParticles, Cebas Visual Technology keeps its promise of delivering continual upgrades and enhancements.

Multi-Physics simulation has never been better and more advanced; fluid simulations and rigid body interactions have been optimized and resemble real world physics behaviour. Surprisingly, improving thinkingParticles simulation accuracy has no penalty and what you see is what you get with amazingly fast simulation times. Drop 7 delivers greater Procedural Volumetric Controls and Shape Operators. TP 6.7 enhances SPH Solver offers great stability.

It is a well known secret within the Visual Effects industry, that 3ds Max and thinkingParticles combined, serves up a killer application to beat any other visual effects production pipeline out there in the market - plain and simple. Nothing compares: Quality, Speed and Return of Investment when you go for a 3ds Max/thinkingParticles FX pipeline. Continuous updates and free enhancements empower Cebas' professional vfx artists to stay at the cutting edge of competition.

thinkingParticles 6.7 packs more in with even greater speed and flexibility - Fluids/waves; OpenVDBShape (multi-threaded), SurfaceForce, WaterLevel, ShapeCutter Operators are the highlights of Drop 7, plus several powerful Geo and Fluid/RBD particle generators. At a fraction of the cost, a complete visual effects package offering state-of-the-art tools in every possible areas of procedural visual effects.

  • Enhanced Fluids
    Fluid solver 6.7 is the best fluid solver offered by thinkingParticles so far. It has always been one of the fastest and most stable particle based SPH solvers in the industry, but it got even better. More stability, more predictable and faster results than ever.

  • SurfaceForce
    The new SurfaceForce Operator allows you to create a force field to continuously displace particles. This new Force Operator is perfect for creating waves and other particle effects with greater ease and amazing flexibility.

  • WaterLevel
    More ways to create particles from the Generator is always good news! This new particle generator offers many creative ways to spawn particles. A simple mouse click to fill a whole landscape with puddles or lakes - how much faster can you get.

  • OpenVDBShape
    Industry standard OpenVDB brings many more new toys! The new OpenVDBShape operator is a lightning fast surfacer offering an optimized multi-threaded approach to surface generation with great flexibility and filtering options.

  • ShapeDeform
    This operator offers a fully procedural approach to deforming objects right within thinkingParticles. Similar to a particle skinner approach, particles 'attach' themselves to the nearest vertex and influence it. Fast and powerful.

  • ShapeCutter
    Boolean operations re-invented. ShapeCutter is more than just a simple cutter operator, it's a true 3D boolean operator! Any mesh can be procedurally bool-ed - the sim is automatically turned into a true 3D volume before any boolean operation is applied. It creates always watertight results.

  • Volume Diffusion
    Simulating true volume diffusion is a tough one, but it can be done in thinkingParticles. Any value attached to a particle can now diffuse within a volume in a physically accurate and fully procedural way. Spreading color, heat or whatever value is fast and simple to achieve.

  • Multi-Physics
    Multi-Physics is a complex beast in need of taming. thinkingParticles is one step closer to the holy grail of combining all natural phenomena calculated in one simulation step. Drop 7 brings you a much more refined and controllable integration of all physics solvers it offers.
