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!

Kieran.

Bakes particle flow particles into meshes and/or helpers.

NOTE: This script bakes only the viewport particles, so in order to get the amout of particles set in your system, set the viewport count to 100%.
