This release of thinkingParticles is not only about adding complete new nodes, it is also about enhancing existing nodes, which offer extended benefits, as completely new nodes are expected to do. Major improvements and upgrades have been done to the proprietary Physics Solver which now takes full advantage of Multiple Core systems. Many new ground breaking concepts have been developed for thinkingParticles R4, like true hierarchical object demolition functions that integrate perfectly with the new Physics Solver engine and that allow the user to create complex demolition sequences, in an easy and fully procedural way.
volumeBreaker Technology has been fully integrated into thinkingParticles R4, allowing for real procedural volume breaking.
