LSSpiroGraph

15 votes

LSSpirograph was written as a tool to create interesting paths for particle emitters to follow. It was designed as an aid to special fx creation for Soul Forge. The script takes input - either from a drop down list of predetermined shapes - or from the sliders on the UI - and then creates two dimensional spline shapes - much like real SpiroGraphs do.

PFlow sticked & aligned

Simply creates per vertex instanced particles aligned to vertex normal, and sticks to the animated container geometry. Powerful!
Ciao!

The shape'll be aligned via z axis ( z upper in front view... )

FumeFX Presets Tool

78 votes

A Simple Tool for speeding intial creation of fumefx. Also has some handing presets for the beginner and the casual effects artist.

Hope you find useful!

BUG: Creating Fumefx Containers via maxscript breaks the preview window, unfotuantly i cannot fix this bug :(. The work around however (and im sorry is a little irratating), is the restart max after you have saved the max file.

Enjoy!

Fontain

11 votes

This program allows you to create a unique fountain. The constituents of
the fountain are set in a group which name is indicated in the field
'NAME:'.
A fountain is made to be exported - and you can not have more than one
fountain in a scene at the moment of its creation. Several fountains can
then be merged in another scene.
