Movie quality Cloth and Fluid Simulation with NVIDIA FleX

GameWorks, FleX

David Coombes, posted Dec 21 2016

FleX is a unified particle physics framework that can be used for all kinds of real-time simulations for all object types: rigid- and soft-bodies as well as fluids and gases. It utilizes the power of CUDA and NVIDIA GPUs and can do simulations with tens of thousands of particles in real-time. It's only natural to wonder whether FleX can produce results applicable not only for real-time, but also for high-precision simulation for animations and feature films.
