Control your sim. Final your shots.




Fracture FX is a production-proven, cross-platform demolition solution for Maya 2011 to 2014. Its procedural, event-driven architecture allows even novice users to take complete control of a destruction simulation and final shots in record time. Art-directable simulations, efficient iterations, out-of-the-box usability and world-class customer care are the corner stones of the Fracture FX experience.

Fracture FX is currently incompatible with viewport 2.0 (which is the default in 2015), so all users using 2015 will have to switch the viewport back to legacy mode (renderer → legacy default viewport) to view simulator previews or any extra output from the break node (e.g. the the paths extracted from the crack image texture).

This will be fixed in the next version of Fracture FX.

Singapore creative agency Cum (http://cum.md/), relied heavily on Fracture FX for their Naga2014 commercial. Says lead 3D artist WenHao Tan: " FractureFX was imperative in helping us complete this in just under a month, including concept and previz." 

All of us at Fracture FX feel great pride when we hear time and time again our software performed as it was designed to do, in the heat of production - and talented people like WenHao use it to control their sims and final their shots under extremely tight deadlines. 

Smashing baby!
