Autodesk Maya 2016 SP6
software is full of new features, performance improvements, and artist-friendly tools that greatly enhance the entire Maya
experience. In addition to an all-new look and feel, Maya 2016
uses more computer resources to help accelerate animation performance.
Adaptive foam in Bifrost
Add froth, foam, and bubbles (â€œwhitewaterâ€) to liquid simulations, creating even more realism and detail in scenes with oceans, beaches, lakes, and stormy seas. Create high-resolution simulations close to the camera, where detail is essential, while lowering the computation of foam particles in other areas. The result: shorter simulation times.
Faster, easier-to-use XGen
An all-new presets workflow enables you to quickly share looks between meshes by applying premade grass or hairstyles to the meshes for an improved starting point. The XGen library now includes presets previously included for Maya
Fur, and allows you to build a library of de******ions with custom thumbnails. So you dont have to rebuild them from scratch every time.
Guided simulation in Bifrost
Drive the behavior of liquids using a cached simulation or an animated mesh object. With a guided simulation, use a full-depth, low-resolution simulation to guide a high-resolution simulation on the liquids surface. Use guided simulation for carefully art-directed hero waves and similar effects. You can perform multiple iterations at high resolution while retaining the basic look and motion of the underlying guiding simulation.
Adaptive Aero solver in Bifrost
Create atmospheric effects such as smoke and mist. Aero produces simulations of higher detail and greater physical accuracy than Maya
Fluid Effects. As with guided simulation, low resolution aero solves can drive higher resolution detail. The added benefit of adaptivity means that you can define regions of high resolution within a massively large computational domain.
