INSYDIUM Fused 2024.2 Update Available

Insydium Fused 2024.2

The INSYDIUM Fused 2024.2 update adds advanced features and options for several tools, including speed and efficiency upgrades.

In summary, new features include enhanced GPU efficiency for NeXus and new modifiers for sophisticated effects. Taiao gets more procedural options, for plant growth and realistic veins in leaves. TerraformFX has been completely overhauled with a new Advanced Terrain Shader, which uses satellite imagery for realistic coloring. It also includes a distribution filter for detailed environments. MeshTools has also expanded its toolkit with some new capabilities.

This update is available to anyone with a Subscription or license in Maintenance, or those who purchased either a Complete license or a Complete Upgrade after February 15th, 2024.

If your license is out of Maintenance or you purchased Complete before February 15th, you must purchase a Maintenance Agreement (if applicable) or a Complete Upgrade.

INSYDIUM Fused 2024.2 Highlights

Below, read the updated information from the INSYDIUM Website, with the sneak peek videos.

NeXus

NeXus

This update significantly enhances NeXus and its GPU core, making the core more efficient, calculations faster, and VRAM usage reduced. The new particle-to-object collisions offer massive speed improvements, which allows NeXus handle complex animated geometry easily.

NeXus now includes four additional modifiers:

  • nxColor: for layering and blending sophisticated coloring effects.
  • nxCover: for covering points, edges, and volumes of scene objects and splines with particles.
  • nxFollowGeo: for aligning particles with the edges and surfaces of objects and splines.
  • nxSticky: for sticking particles to static and animated objects.

Taiao

Taiao

Taiao has further improved its usability with additions to the Growth Point layer in toPlant, offering more procedural options for scattered objects, including scale, rotation, and separation. The toLeaf component introduces a layer-based venation system, which can build complex, realistic vein structures and now comes with leaf presets.

Additionally, modifiers have been upgraded, featuring updated furling options to prevent the intersection of leaves and flowers.

TerraformFX

terraform fx

The TerraformFX overhaul is significant, introducing the powerful new Advanced Terrain Shader, a procedural texturing tool and terrain map generator. This advanced shader utilizes and blends data channels—including the newly added ‘Curvature’—to mix colors for landscapes, accurately mapping them to over 1450 Terrain Color Palettes. These palettes are sampled from worldwide satellite imagery, ensuring the realistic shading of terrains.

Furthermore, tfDistribute, a new filter, allows for the distribution of rocks, shrubs, trees, and even custom objects on terrains, enhancing environmental detail. The brand-new Noise generator can create almost limitless terrain shapes and rock formations, offering unprecedented control and creativity in terrain design.

MeshTools

MeshTools

MeshTools has seen exciting updates to both mtInset and mtSubdivider. It has also been enhanced with powerful new procedurally-based tools added to the modeling toolkit.

  • mtPolyFold enables folding and peeling effects from points that you control.
  • mtPointProject allows you to project the points of objects or splines onto the surface of other scene geometry.

Both features can be controlled with materials, shaders, and fields, providing greater versatility and creativity in modeling.
