(3ds Max only)
Add drama and interest to your scenes with realistic simulations of fire, water, oceans, and more. Chaos Phoenix is an artist-friendly tool for creating all types of dynamic effects.
And it’s not just for VFX. In arch-viz, it’s perfect for creating pools, fountains, and fireplaces. For automotive specialists, it can help you burn some rubber in your next car animation. There are a million ways to use the power of the Phoenix!
There are some materials that are impossible to recreate with any number of parameters and maps in a generalized material, as they have a unique way of responding to light. This is where Chaos Scans comes in. Each material in the library is meticulously scanned to capture how it interacts with light so that you can drag-and-drop it into your scene for 100% accuracy in both look and scale.
This comes into its own with materials such as leather, clothing fabrics, car paints, and reflective and holographic materials. With just a click you can add these materials to your scene, confident that you are recreating reality without spending hours trying to build the material for yourself.
Your frames just finished rendering. Now you want a fast and easy way to review your animation. That’s what Chaos Player is built for. Simply load your rendered sequence and hit play.
In addition to its smooth and fast playback, Chaos Player includes tools for quick compositing, color corrections, and collaboration. It’s perfect for reviews and approvals.
Note for new artists: It’s always best to render any animations to an image sequence — it makes it easy to replace certain frames if a client requests changes, and if the power goes out during a render you don’t have to start all over again. Chaos Player is ideal to check and work with your image sequence without firing up some expensive, overly-complex, and resource-hungry video editing app!
