Don't just Animate, Simulate!
Create Highly Realistic Destruction and Deformation Animations in less time while increasing quality.
Now you can use the same advanced simulation technology that high-end visual effects studios use to bring your artistic creations to life.
The DMM Plugin for Maya allows you to do high quality finite-element-based destruction right inside of Maya. Simulate anything from jelly to diamond. Control your physical reality by changing plasticity, toughness, shape preservation and many other physically simulated parameters.
Imagine building a character rig that has DMM flesh that moves in response to kinematically driven bones, or a railroad trestle where the timbers flex and crack under the weight of a passing train. Use your imagination to create animations with DMM with subtle effects that are impossible through manual animation or simple fracture/shatter scripts.
Simulation-Driven Animation with DMM is creating a revolution in visual effects. With over 30 feature films using DMM for key destruction shots ranging from the destruction of entire cities to intricate fracture of a bullet going through a tree, DMM is well-suited for whatever you throw at it.
See what fxGuide has to say about DMM in this article.
To the right, you will find links to full-featured versions of the DMM Plugin. These versions are limited in the number of tetrahedra you can simulate, but are otherwise fully functional. You can upgrade to the unlimited version with no simulation limits for only $499. Just click on the Paypal link above to purchase.
Some DMM Tutorials available here.
Pipeine Integration of DMM is also available. Utilizing command line or library versions of the DMM toolchain, DMM Technology can be fully integrated into your production pipeline. Please contact us for details.
