This is seriously amazing stuff here! One question though, I had never heard of FLOOD before and after some searching realized it's another in house app of frantic films? Then I noticed how amazing it is! Only to realize it is only available for Deadline..? Any hope of FLOOD ever being released as a stand alone? Either way, I'm very excited for krakatoa and maybe one day ill be able to play with FLOOD..awesome stuff!! keep it up.

FLOOD is not available in any commercial form (unless you work at Frantic Films).

Here some more info:

looks very good indeed. im currently using FUME and TP. Will there be support for thinking particles, or will this be a PFLOW only intergration?
excuse my stupidity if this has been mentioned already

I'm eagerly anticipating the release, especially since it currently takes hours for a single particle-hungry frame to render on my current machine. It would also come in very handy if I happen to start working on the fxwars disintegration challenge.

Tim, we use Krakatoa as alternative rendering method for Fume simulations - the two are a match made in heaven.
At the moment, Krakatoa supports PFlow and provides more limited support for Max Legacy Particles, Thinking Particles, Geometry Vertices as Particles and any (potential) 3rd party particle systems that expose the IParticleObjectExt interface. Currently, PFlow's integration is way ahead of the other systems (we had to start somewhere, and PFlow is in every Max version since R6 after all), but we are working on improving the TP support with the kind assistance of Cebas North America. We hope to support TP 3.0 when it is released.

excellent. good to see a bit more support swinging TP's way, and Cebas are doing a great job collaberating with other software at the moment. Really looking forward to seeing the fume intergration, looks like a great pairing.

congrats to the frantic team in producing this. and thanks bobo for spending time answering questions. nice to see big studios putting back into the community

The Frantic Software page was designed back in 2004. At this point, we are actively maintaining only the Deadline portion of it because that's the product we have to support daily.

Krakatoa was actually announced on http://support.franticfilms.com after last Siggraph - we even demoed it in Boston at our first ever Frantic Software booth. There is also a private area on that site that deals with the Beta test.

But at this point, we haven't made an official announcement about the upcoming release as we don't know when it will ship - there are two factors that play a role here. First, internal development for feature film projects has higher priority. At this point, we are using Krakatoa on such a project, thus we have to make sure it does the job for us and this can take away resources from finishing the commercial package. And second, we ship only when we are comfortable with the quality of the product, not earlier.
There are still several features and bugs we have to work on before that. But as you can see, both these points will affect positively the product you will be able to buy when it finally ships...
