Chapter 16. Dynamics > Fluid Effects

Fluid Effects

Fluid Effects are used to create a realistic simulation of a particles movement depending on its surrounding environment, for example if the temperature of the air is higher in a certain area, a particle will rise more quickly through that area.

At the time of this writing, Fluid Effects, a new dynamic system in Maya, is only available in Maya Unlimited. And Maya Unlimited, unfortunately, is only available on Windows. The word fluid actually refers to motion (rather than a simulation of actual fluid), which means you can use the system to create such effects as explosions, smoke, flames, oceans, clouds, and thick liquids.
