Main Features

Whitewater Effects

Create awesome large scale fluid effects with the whitewater simulator. Generate and simulate millions of foam, bubble, dust, and spray particles to give a sense of realism to large bodies of water.

High Viscosity Effects

Use the high accuracy viscosity solver to simulate thin silky-smooth liquids, thick fluids that buckle and coil, and anything in between.
You will be able to simulate thicker fluid in Blender than you could ever before!

Surface Tension and Sheeting

Create beautiful small-scale fluid effects with surface tension and add particle sheeting to create large thin splashes.
Simulate the natural cohesion of surface molecules that cause fluids to form into beads, drip, and add an elastic look to splashes.

Custom Built Force Fields

We built our own custom force field system designed specifically for popular liquid effects! Volume forces for forming liquid shapes, surface forces for aligning gravity to surface normals or to help liquid stick to surfaces, and curve forces for guiding liquid to flow and spin along a curve.

FLIP and APIC Solvers

Choose between FLIP and an APIC simulation methods!
FLIP is turbulent and chaotic - good for large scale splashy simulations. APIC is smooth, stable, and swirly - good for small scale or viscous simulations.

Mixbox Included

Simulate the physically accurate mixing of colors to help you create vibrant multi-color simulations using the FLIP Fluids Mixbox plugin.
Mixbox is a pigment mixing technology that is researched and developed by the Secret Weapons team.

Preset Assets

We are using Blender's Asset System to give you quick access to various setup for domains, shaders, attributes, and more.

Attributes System

The new Attributes System allows you to modify materials with dependencies. Liquids can have different colors based on their speed and age. Multiple colors can be mixed. Particles can vary in size. And much, much more!Attributes expand the FLIP Fluids Addon's horizon with an unbelievable number of possibilities.

Support for Fracture Modifier Models

When imported as an Alembic file you can use fracture simulations that were made with the older Blender Fracture Modifier as obstacles in a FLIP Fluids simulation. Our simulator contains optimization features specifically for these kind of animations.

There is more

Pause and Resume Baking

Bake simulations on your own schedule! Our smart caching system allows you to pause and resume simulation baking- even after a Blender crash. Did you notice a mistake halfway through the simulation? No need to restart the simulation from the beginning, you can update your setup and resume baking from an earlier frame.

Easily Contained Fluid

Containing fluid inside of an object is a common scenario in many fluid effects. With our Obstacle Inverse Workflow, you can simply enable an option to make your object a hollow container to perfectly contain fluid without any leaks!

Responsive UI and Feedback

Being able to see feedback on how your simulation is progressing is essential to a good workflow. The simulator is designed to run in the background so that Blender is still completely usable during simulation. You will be able to view new frames as the simulation progresses while setting up materials and lighting for render. Detailed statistics are provided as your simulation runs to help you understand how your set up is performing.

Debugging Tools

Is your simulation not running as expected? We provide you with helpful built-in tools that you can use to debug your simulation setup. Visualize the simulation grid to better understand how grid detail relates to resolution. Visualize how the simulator is converting your obstacles into solid volumes to diagnose problems related to geometry and insufficient resolution.

Command Line Tools and Sidebar Menu

The fastest and most stable method of baking and rendering huge amounts of simulation data in Blender is through the command line. Our command line tools in the Sidebar Helper Menu will help you automatically set up and launch command line baking and rendering tasks.

Tutorial Series and Documentation

Learning fluid simulation does not need to be difficult. Get started with FLIP Fluids by following our video learning series. While using the addon, hover over any option for a detailed tooltip. Visit our extensive documentation and wiki for tips, notes, and detailed descriptions of settings and how they can be used.

Example Scenes and Preset Scenes

Our Example Scenes and Preset Scenes collections contain render setups and detailed notes on the simulation set up to help you understand how to use many of the features of the FLIP Fluids addon.
