View Full Version : Next Limit launches the RealFlow RenderKit!

01 January 2009, 10:28 AM

Next Limit Technologies has launched a brand-new product: the RealFlow RenderKit.

The RealFlow RenderKit is a set of tools that has been designed to facilitate the complex task of rendering RealFlow™ fluids. The RFRK enables you to generate procedural geometry at render time, and also render individual fluid particles. As a result, the RFRK will dramatically simplify and accelerate your RealFlow™ workflow. The software is currently available for RenderMan® and Mental Ray®, and will be available shortly for Maxwell Render™.

Andy Cochrane, a top CG Artist at Asylum Visual Effects, who worked with the RFRK on Oscar-nominated movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, was delighted with the results:

“Without the RealFlow RenderKit, we never would have been able to push the fluid renders to the resolution and quality that we delivered on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The RFRK allowed us to deliver higher resolution and better-looking CG water than previously possible, and in far less time than traditional meshes would have required.”

For more, see the RFRK website:

Right now the supported renderers are Renderman and mental ray. We will have Maxwell compatibility in the near future, and we're currently evaluating the possibility of including others, among them Mantra, depending on demand. If you want to find out more about RFRK compatibility, you can have a look at our website:
