Maya is a popular 3D modelling program, well-known for its ease of use when creating realistic animations and effects. It allows users to apply modelling layers to give a free-form approach to 3D animation. As an Autodesk product, it seamlessly integrates with other great plugins, such as Phoenix FD, Yeti and XGen.
Phoenix FD, a Chaos Group product, is a complete solution for fluid dynamics that can be used to simulate liquids, smoke, fire, ocean waves, splashes and more. It is a single, powerful plugin that has a fast setup and can be seamlessly integrated into 3ds Max and Maya and optimized to render with V-Ray.
