Post by nodeway » 29 Dec 2016, 04:15

Hi!

I'm looking more and more at Nvidia whole Gameworks stuff and I found this guy => http://cgicoffee.com/blog/2016/08/nvidi ... simulation who implemented it in Softimage.

Is he one of you?

There is a new PhysX v3.4 with new type of solver, but it's not available yet for download.
From what I read 3.4 should integrate FLEX as part of PhysX library, not as separate product based on PhysX.

Update: His name's Armen and he replied to me, thought I'd share it here
My crashy ICE node was made up of several out-of-core XSI components that didn't even compile properly into external DLLs, so I can't... No - won't publish this mess even if I could make it work it again. My friend is still working on a newer implementation I used in my FleX fluid studies, but he's not ready to share it yet. IDK when and if he will though, but I'll ask him again.
FYI

PhysX 3.4 pre-release is available on NVidia GitHub. Final relase should be around end of February.

FLEX is ported to DirectX. It works also on AMD cards :D.
