    Things are looking UP!

    Hi All,

    Just a quick announcement that the UP Open Beta for Squirt Gun has officially begun.

    Early Bird Pricing of $75 ends April 1

    Looks like a really good tool for some nice quick effects. Are the upgrades free for when you add in the cloth stuff?
    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.

    No, the only free updates will be maintenance/bug fixes. But if you already purchased the framework, each new tool will be for sale for $20-$50 depending how much work they are. And the price of the framework will grow to account for the new features added.

    Oh..Gee can you not extend that early bird a week or too, I havenīt gotten round to even try the demo..I will do this week but I need to install new drivers since the demo crashed with the old ones, and I also would need a bit time to try it out.
    Just my take on it..itīs a bit short next to the release I think, I think that yould raise the chances of you getting more of it sold initially as well.

    it's only $99 after April 1st, so still quite cheap.
    ($99 price sticks until release date)

    I second prometheus request for early bird offer to be extended.
    I do not have a cuda card but do have an AMD card.
    In your reply to me about AMD support you said you will be providing an AMD version of your Plugin in a few days.
    [Hopefully a Demo version as well].

    If you release a demo AMD version at least a couple days before April 1st
    that will give me and others time to try it out.
    Im only asking for an extention in case you still need more time to resolve unexpected issues.
    If everything works fine then likely ill buy into your software.

    Ok, I finally got the AMD version working today but need to test some more before releasing the Demo version... probably tomorrow. So I just extended the Early Bird Special to April 5 to give everyone a better chance to evaluate.

    UP 0_8_1_0 is released now and includes a Direct3D version that works on AMD and NVIDIA cards that support Direct3D 11/12. Make sure to try the demo first!

    Lightwave next isn't going to have its own fluid sim.
    April 5 is fast approaching. Absolutely no brainer picking up this plugin now.

    I've only had a chance to play with UP a little since buying it, because I have a ton of real work that doesn't include one drop of water... Like in the car clip above, my water seems to want to bead up, like huge drops, even though I was working at a larger scale on a whitewater rafting type of river scene. Does anyone know how to tweak the watery settings to make the water lay down more on stuff and flatten itself out quicker? Do we need to work with highly exaggerated scales to achieve more realistic water in larger scenes? I must be missing something somewhere, because I have tried all kinds of different settings....
