Hope everybody is doing fine!
I am very pleased to announce the release of emPolygonizer5 (version 5.1)
Aside from new features and many improvements this new version is not only available for Softimage, but also for Maya, MODO, Fabric Engine and as a command line tool..
=> pick your poison!
I am aware that this is a Softimage community and you guys know that I am myself a 100% XSI fan, but things changed a little when what's-the-name-of-that-company-again decided to end Softimage. So the plan - as far as Mootzoid is concerned - is to continue releasing stuff for Softimage, but also to provide versions of the same plugin for other packages.
A release video was also made for the occasion. It contains four minutes of diverse meshed particle simulations.
The particle simulations were made with Softimage ICE & Lagoa, Houdini and with Proteus. Latter is a new SPH solver that is being developed by some amazing brains of the Computer Graphics Department of Freiburg University in Germany. In case you are interested in knowing more about Proteus and the team behind it, please check the links in the post scriptum.
Voilà, that's all for now.
Very much hope this new version will prove itself a valuable companion in production, regardless of what 3D app you are using. That being said... I hope it is Softimage|XSI ;)
