Next Limit unveils RealFlow | Cinema 4D 2.0

Friday, July 14th, 2017 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Next Limit has announced RealFlow | Cinema 4D 2.0, the latest version of its fluid simulation software for Cinema 4D, adding support for granular, viscous and viscoelastic materials, and interacting fluids.

A cut-down version of RealFlow integrated directly into Cinema 4D
First released last year, RealFlow | Cinema 4D is a new edition of RealFlow integrated directly into C4D.

It features a cut-down version of the toolset from the standalone edition of the software aimed more at motion graphics than heavy visual effects work, and costs $300 less.

New in version 2.0: more material types, support for interacting fluids and property maps
To that, the new release will add many of the key features introduced in versions 10.0 and 10.1 of the standalone edition, including the GPU-accelerated Dyverso multiphysics solver.

The update should make it possible to simulate a much greater range of materials, including granular solids, viscous and viscoelastic fluids (above), plus rigid and elastic bodies.


It also adds a few key older features from the standalone edition: notably, support for simulations in which two separate fluids interact – for example, simulation of oil and water.

Cinema 4D users will also now be able to use image maps representing properties like friction, stickiness and roughness to control the way scene objects interact with fluid particles.

New features unique to the Cinema 4D edition include the option to use C4D’s native falloff functions to control RealFlow daemons; and a “completely Alembic-based pipeline”.

Pricing and availability
Next Limit hasn’t announced a release date for RealFlow | Cinema 4D 2.0 yet, but it’s available to pre-order at a discount price of $545 until 24 July 2017, so we’d assume it will be shortly after that.

The current version is available for Cinema 4D R15+ on 64-bit Windows 7+ and Mac OS X 10.9+. It costs $795.
