Chaos released a new cool blog post about using Chaos Phoenix to make your arch-viz scenes amazing!
Want to add a lick of fire to a gas stove? Or give your luxury apartment an infinity pool that rolls out onto the Pacific? Chaos Phoenix can help.
With Phoenix for 3ds Max and Phoenix for Maya, it’s easy to create and control flowing liquids, foams, gasses, flames, and smoke clouds that realistically interact with anything around them. The possibilities for Phoenix in arch-viz are endless, but here we’ll give you some ideas of how to put it to use.
1. Create ambiance using fire
Phoenix is great at creating all types of fire — from a candle flame that illuminates the scene, to a cozy fireplace that will add a sense of warmth and comfort to your renders.
2. Make your kitchen shine
Bringing your kitchen renders to life is all about the little details.
3. Upgrade your bathrooms
Check out our example shower scene to find out how to make a shower and randomize the flow of your liquid.
4. Fountains and Pools
Phoenix is all about making things easy but giving you creative control when needed.
In the fountain example scene, you can learn how to easily create fountains by emitting liquid from a geometry object and then emulating a whitewater effect by shading the liquid through the Phoenix Particle Shader, which allows you to render particles as bubbles, points, or fog.
5. Beach and oceans
When creating beachside outdoor scenes, sometimes you can get away with a texture for your background. But if you’re making an animation sequence or you want to get the image exactly as you imagine it, having a real beach with waves and foam or a vast ocean surface can produce stunning results.
Please, check the full blog post here, and let's hope that these awesome tips will indeed help your scenes shine, as well as it will make your life easier when rendering your projects on your favorite render farms!
