FractureFX

Control your sim. Final your shots.




Fracture FX is a production-proven, cross-platform demolition solution for Autodesk Maya. Fracture FX's 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.

Our latest addition to Fracture allows a user to project a black-and-white ramp onto a mesh which can then be animated so that fracturing actually appears to "grow" during a simulation. We are very excited to introduce this feature and look forward to involvement and feedback from our testers in how we can improve and extend the functionality.

PS. One of our most experienced testers is already turning over some interesting test footage of his early experiments. [link]

This week we announce the new feature to Fracture, Split Plane. The split plane utilizes a plane node (similar to our crack image plane) to control the orientation and position of a split on a mesh. These nodes can be interactively manipulated while the effected mesh updates in the viewport.
