Nextlimit has made some made huge leaps and bounds with their fluid simulation application Realflow 2013. With the previous version, 2012, they introduced Hybrido fluids which was a mid-scale simulation tool. Well, with 2013 they’ve made huge improvements to Hybrido and the filters to allow quicker calculations and effects.
What really turned my head is the addition to a node based workflow. If you’re familiar with NUKE or Cinema4D you’ll quickly understand why this method is efficient and powerful.
Now, for most of us, one project cannot justify spending a cool 4k. If you think you can justify spending a pile of cash which could be a plugin for most 3d applications I’d go for it.
