Discreet has made available a new Particle Flow Extension software for 3ds max customers registered under the Discreet Subscription Program, a component of the Autodesk Subscription Program. Discreet subscribers can use the new tool integrated into 3ds max software to create realistic fountains, fog, snow, splashes, contrails, explosions and other environmental effects. Along with standard maintenance downloads, subscriber program members receive valuable software "extensions," online learning tools, and specialized educational material. So far 3ds max subscribers have received Design Extension tools (for design visualization), the Shockwave Extension (ability to output in the Shockwave Format), e-learning material and now the Particle Flow Extension. Customers may keep their animation tools up-to-date for an annual fee.
