Simulate fire, smoke, dust and other gaseous phenomena
Turbulence Fluid Dynamics (TFD) makes physical simulations of fire, smoke, dust and other gaseous phenomena available directly in CINEMA 4D. TFD is designed to be easy to use, optimized for performance and produce very high quality results.
System requirements: 64bit CINEMA 4D Prime, Broadcast, Visualize or Studio, R12 or newer
Fluid Simulation needs quite a bit of processing power. Mostly because there is a huge amount of data to be pushed around. This makes memory bandwidth the most important factor for simulation speed. Today's fastest memory interfaces are found in GPUs - about 10 times faster than those of CPUs. Coupled with the appropriate amount of parallel compute power, GPUs are the ideal type of processor for fluid simulation.
TurbulenceFD makes use of GPUs for it's simulation pipeline. Unlike with some GPU accelerated tools, this is not just a stripped down version of the CPU pipeline. All features are supported at the same quality. In fact, you can switch between CPU and GPU simulation on-the-fly (see Simulation Window). This is also what TurbulenceFD will do automatically, should it run out of GPU memory. It will then continue the simulation on the CPU.
