We stream high end result to hololens from Unity so imagine this through an AR HMD!

Very informative thread, thank you! Inspiring and reassuring to see the process behind such amazing renders. I started using UE4 a month ago, for a work in my firm and I'm still struggling with some concepts! I wish to see more article like this! Thibault (from France)

Your post is very good and meaningful. How long will it take you to write and post? thank you for sharing slither io

TyFlow - Powerful Simulation with 3ds Max
31 July, 2018

Take a look at a tool for 3ds Max called TyFlow which is basically a complete rewrite of Particle Flow, in development by Tyson Ibele. It’s something like PFlow, but much more powerful.  


  • Every operator is fully multithreaded
  • Tons of new operators, featuring things like a granular solver, cloth, rope, proper path follow, DLA growth, constraints, etc.
  • Spline operator and a super fast spline meshing modifier for converting particle trajectories/neighbors/constraints/etc into spline meshes
  • Up-to-date PhysX support
  • Voronoi fracture, brick fracture, boolean fracture, convex decomosition, etc, built-in
  • All of PFlow’s terrible O(n^2) operations that make it totally unusable for productions have been properly accelerated (mesh collisions, nearest neighbor searches, surface lock/bond, etc)
  • No more hidden PFlow operator/event nodes in the scene to manage, each flow is fully self-contained
  • Tons of extra control has been added to all the base operators, and each operator has timing activation control
  • A C# script operator that executes nearly as fast as native c++ and that supports multithreaded scripts
  • VRay instance rendering support, GPU instancing in the viewport (easily display 100s of millions of polys in the view no problem)
  • Super fast auto-caching, similar to how Houdini caches things on the fly
  • PhoenixFD grid support, PRT import/export
  • Simulation retiming
  • A custom file caching system that is often hundreds/thousands times smaller in file size than alternative systems like xMesh

The developer is going to launch a public beta with more features like crowd simulation support, ragdolls, etc. More details can be found here.

hope to see look like this for cinema 4d …
