PYRO FX

Learn how to use Houdini's Pyro FX tools to create realistic fire and smoke. Create efficient simulations that allow for more iterations to allow you to art direct the results. Learn how to work with these volume-based tools to control the look of the simulation. The Pyro shader can then be used to add a realistic rendering of the effect.
