See what's new!


Take your simulations to the next level with DYVERSO. Thanks to the powerful new solvers and the addition of GPU acceleration, your simulations will be lightning fast. Exceed your expectations and build smooth layered meshes.


Direct to Render - Render your simulation in RealFlow.

  • Easy steps to import your scene, add the fluids and render them out from RealFlow.
  • Fine tune realistic materials directly in RealFlow, connect magnitudes such as speed, vorticity or age.
  • Valid for static frames or animation sequences.
  • Powered by the most advanced physically-based render engine: Maxwell Render.


Precise collisions

  • Clear and fast collisions on complex geometry and speeding objects.
  • Hybrido also benefits from a more in-depth integration of OpenVDB algorithms in RealFlow 2015.
  • Hybrido Flip simulations are now faster, have more accurate collisions, and better memory management, especially when dealing with complex geometry and fast moving objects.


User interface

  • Enhanced UI: compact relationship editor nodes.
  • Nodes panel: one click workflows.
  • Params panel: animate button, expressions, lock params, ramps & curves widgets, sliders & middle mouse button controls.



  • Create splines to emit fluids from an object and control forces.
  • Import your own SVG files into RealFlow as spline nodes.
  • Spline curves can be created interactively, or imported using SVG format, and used to emit fluid or control the Spline Daemon forces.


Text Tool - New text tool for SPLINES and GEOMETRY.

  • A new tool for creating text has also been added and appears in two different locations on the shelves.
  • On the splines shelf, the text tool allows for creating splines emitters and forces.
  • On the Objects Shelf, the text tool generates text as native RealFlow primitive objects.


Daemons Falloff

With the additions of Daemons Falloff controls, the users now have the power to shape, even more artistically, how the forces affect the RealFlow simulations. Thanks to the enhancements to the user interface, controls such as spline curves are now possible to drive highly detailed effects.


Crown Daemon - Splashes everywhere

The New crown daemon adds a very fast and easy way of creating a very in demand fluid effect.
With just a few steps, users can define the shape of the splash crown they want to create, and the fluid will follow that shape when it gets activated, and for the time the user decides the force to have an effect.


SpreadSheets - Query. Visualize. Modify

The New Spreadsheets Panel allows for a great deal of flexibility, control and customization over pretty much any of the simulation elements. Users can now visualize, filter, modify and delete particle and object values in a very straightforward way, speeding up workflows and turnarounds, making RealFlow artists and TDs’ lives much easier.



  • With DYVERSO solvers (DY-SPH, DY-PBD) and GPU acceleration, scenes that with previous RealFlow versions might have taken hours can now be simulated in a matter of minutes. Up to 10 x faster.
  • RealFlow 2015 now comes with OpenVDB meshing by default for both Particles and Hybrido fluids solutions.
  • With OpenVDB meshing, users can now get faster results and, with the new volume filters, fine tuning the look of the meshes becomes even easier than before.
