Eric Mootz releases emNewton 2.0 for Softimage

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Eric ‘Mootzoid’ Mootz has released a beta of emNewton 2.0, his new Softimage ICE plugin for simulating the effects of universal gravitation on particle systems.

The release comes with a demo of suitably intergalactic scope, showing clouds of particles coalescing into solar systems, each particle attracting every other within the simulation.

Happily, simulation times are rather less astronomical: Mootz quotes calculation times (excluding caching) of 10 seconds per frame for a one-million-particle system for a single Intel Core i7-based machine.

emNewton 2.0 is available now, for Softimage 2011 SP1 and above, price €99 (around $125).

    Man, that’s beautiful. He’s got it right. The more mass, the greater the gravitational pull, and when more more groups cluster, the group acts as a collective, single group of greater mass and gravitational pull on other objects outside the cluster. Great visualization. That was great to watch.
