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!

Fume & Flow Floater
This floater is a way to hopefully unclutter the workflow with Particle Flow, Space Warps, and FumeFX. It is designed so you can work in expert mode to free up some screen space. It has just about all you need to work with pflow and fume. The script contains a large and small version. The large is nice when you've got a nice 20"+ inch monitor the "mini" is better for smaller screen sizes.

Fume Object Source Manager

Rollouts for duplicating and managing multiple object sources since you can't instance object sources (because you can only have one object per source)

*Can duplicate object source and assign objects to selected geometry automatically
*Optionally add new sources to fume grid obj/src list
*Contains all functionality of the object src modify panel

FumeFX RGB Light Rig

Since there is no way to export a Normals pass from FumeFX for re-lighting in comp, I set this up to set your Red, Green, and Blue lights to fake an RGB pass. It's pretty straight forward.

This script will divide a fumeFx grid into partitions.
This can also be used to simulate a batch of fume grids locally or via backburner.

FFX-Render-Manager

Big scale effects require usually more than one FFX. Having a lot of FFX and holdout objects asks for a lot of memory. Limited memory means rendering in passes. Different lights and shaders per pass multiply the renderpasses again.

To setup a render, it takes some steps and usually you forget one and need to resubmit. That's why I wrote this script, that overviews everything and gives the ability to set it up fast.

I avoided using .NET intentionally, because in big scenes it sometimes takes a long time just to open a scripted tool.
