AfterBurn is an advanced volumetric particle effects engine plug-in that enables rendering of various realistic effects ranging from clouds, pyroclastic smoke, dust, explosions effects, liquid metals and various procedurally defined objects. Along with FumeFX, it is a perfect tool for your VFX toolbox. It has been used on numerous movie projects including Armageddon, K-19, Dracula 2000, Flight of the Phoenix and more.
AfterBurn pioneered many unique features to 3ds max atmospherics, such as intuitive user interface layout, custom gradient and AFC controllers, HyperSolids rendering engine, volumetric metaballs, volumetric Daemons, support for Rendering Effects and more.
Almost every parameter inside the AfterBurn UI can be controlled over the particle lifespan. Custom gradient and curve controls are available for more productive work.
AfterBurn controllers enable you to vary parameters by particle age, particle velocity, distance from the emitter or any other object in the scene, Thinking Particles channel or Krakatoa float channel.
