Hi , i also need to know , anyone knows if aura is compatible with MR in max6?

Hey mariano, i'm waiting for my authorization code to come back and then i can try some tests. Anybody know how long these builds will be coming? or when the product will be ready?

Hey, i checked to see if it works with MR... Very unfortunatly no. We could put a bug in their ear but i wonder if they would really add support for MR as they have their own renderer they have to sell... Darn! Oh well, i'm optimistic.

Mental Ray support will be added soon, probably the next build. And the next build will come around the beginning of February

Aura: any tutorials?

I was most impressed with the Aura examples I ran across and I see that the public beta is available for download as an installer file. However, I can find no HELP file and no docs anywhere. Is there a tutorial available anywhere? Can anyone point me in the right direction? I am embarassed to say that I can't find the installed plug anywhere. Thanks.

The installer installs both the plugin and the help files. Check Help -> Additional help and it should be there.

Max 7 question

Thanks. I confirmed that the help file is indeed there although for some reason it isn't showing up from inside Max 6. I'll try re-installing.

By the way, when I originally tried to install into Max 7 I got a dialog that said the plug-in wasn't installable. I recall hearing that Max 7 was designed to run ALL plugs that work in 6. Is it possible to use Aura with 7?

I'm really impressed with the examples I've seen and I'm grateful to Chaos for making this public beta available.

new build!!!

hi everyone,

since build 0.61.01 there was a major bug with all turbolence values. chaosgroup fixed that now in the new build 0.63.02!

i tested aura for some time now and i will use it for my diploma film. it's definitly a great and powerful fluid dynamics plugin for 3dsmax, even if its considered to simulate fire & smoke!

some tests i've made:

C&C are welcome

Anyone know what the copyright status of this public beta is? am I allowed to use imagery created with Aura in a commercial production? I can't see any info at the chaos website.

EDIT: Silly me, of course they would put the info in the installer file!
