Jason Key shared a short demo showcasing the company's upcoming real-time fluid simulation software.
Principal VFX Artist and JangaFX Evangelist Jason Key has recently shared a brief demo providing a look at the company's LiquiGen, the company's upcoming fluid simulation software.
Originally announced in 2020 as a companion for EmberGen, the team's other tool meant for fire and smoke simulations, LiquiGen is currently in early development, with JangaFX sharing impressive demos every once in a while showcasing the tool's progression. The new demo provides a look at LiquiGen's core water simulation capabilities, with Jason noting that the demonstrated sim is still an "early prototype", suggesting that the software will be further improved and refined prior to its release.
Notably, this is not the first LiquiGen demo shared by JangaFX in recent weeks. Earlier this month, the team also shared a cool trailer showcasing the real-time simulation and path-traced rendering capabilities of the application, with the fluid simulation demos featured in the trailer having been rendered on an RTX 4090 GPU.
As mentioned before, LiquiGen is still at its earliest stages of development, and its release date remains undisclosed. In the meantime, you can check out JangaFX's other tool – EmberGen.
The software is a real-time volumetric fluid simulation tool that allows users to simulate, render, and export flipbooks, image sequences, and VDB volumes. Using the toolkit you can create a range of effects including fire, smoke, explosions, and more. Back in June, Jason also demonstrated how EmberGen can be used to set up an appealing underwater effect:
