Welcome to thinkingParticles 6.5™

thinkingParticles™ is one of cebas’ flagship plugins widely known for its fully procedural and physically accurate, real world destruction and special effects simulations in the movie and games industry.

Countless blockbuster movies and projects depend on thinkingParticles' limitless ability to recreate advanced physics-based particle effects in a fully procedural way.

Subscription Drop 5, represents the latest major release of thinkingParticles, offered for free, to all full Subscription users in good standing. Cebas Visual Technology keeps its promise of delivering continues upgrades and enhancements.

Multi-Physics simulation has never been better and more advanced; fluid simulations and rigid body interactions have been optimized and resemble real world physics behaviour. Surprisingly, improving thinkingParticles simulation accuracy has no penalty and what you see is what you get with amazingly fast simulation times. Drop 5 delivers an industry first: FlowEmitter it is a new particle generator that has solved many long-standing fluid simulation issues, a thorn in the sides of many graphics industry professionals for decades, has now been resolved. No other fluid simulation system in the market today allows you to simulate filled bottles or containers in such a short amount of time and with lesser effort.
