RealFlow 2012’s new fracture tool in action. For more videos of RealFlow 2012, click here.

Next Limit has released an update to its RealFlow fluid-simulation software, significantly expanding the capabilities of its Hybrido solver and its rigid-body dynamics tools.

RealFlow 2012 (RealFlow 6, had Next Limit not switched to Autodesk-style numbering) builds on version 5’s Caronte dynamics solver, adding Voronoi fracturing and ‘servos’ (simulations controlled by virtual ‘engines’).

Hybrido, the hybrid grid/particle-based fluid solver introduced in RealFlow 5, now gives more complex and controllable results, adding four new emitter types and support for secondary splashes.

RealFlow 6 also introduces a new Retimer tool for slowing, speeding up or reversing simulations, and a number of GUI updates.

Pricing remains unchanged at $3,995 for a Standard licence or $500 for a node licence.

Next Limit has also introduced a new one-year Learning Edition, which is restricted to 100 Caronte objects and 100,000 particles. It costs $245.
