Exotic Matter releases Naiad Overview

Naiad is a dynamics solver and a simulation framework capable of producing animations of dynamic bodies including:


- large and small bodies of water

- breaking waves

- splashes and foam

- accurate viscous liquids featuring buckling, coiling and bending motion

- high degree of creative control while preserving realistic fluid motion


- fire

- smoke

- explosions

full two-way coupling of rigid-bodies to fluids.

Other features include its Time-Step Graph, which allows the artist to express what happens at each time-step of the simulation, and the interface to describe the graph.
