Nice 3D Animation and a Making Of

Nicolas Brunet created a very nice 3D animation and used SnowFlowPro for creating the snow.

Watch the animation here and don't forget to take a look at the "Making of"!

This little 3D buddha statue created from several images with the free software 123DCatch was covered with snow by the new SnowFlowPRO. This new version of SnowFlow will be released at the beginning of next year. is OUT NOW!


Pssssst… hot news!

stay tuned... Grin


SnowPrint is now available as a standalone plugin!

SnowPrint is now a standalone plugin for 3D Studio Max to print objects onto other objects to create imprints, footprints, pencil strokes, wetmaps,...

Before version 2.0 SnowPrint was included in SnowFlow. Now it's available as version 2.0 to produce more precise imprints in less time. It's newly programmed from the ground up to gain more speed (it uses all cpu cores) and to bring better usability. After installation you can find the SnowPrint texture in your material editor.

Have fun with SnowPrint!

We are proud to show you two videos where SnowFlow has been used to add realistic snow to their 3d environments. Thanks to Peter Guthrie (intro for Stöten Ski Resort) and IXOR (Gazprom TV Commercial)!


A quick SnowPrint tutorial

This short video tutorial will show you how to use SnowPrint, a special feature of SnowFlow 1.8


quick bugfix for SnowPrint

For all those that have a little problem using SnowPrint the first time:
If you get an error that says that something is wrong with map channel 0, just click the "map channel" spinner once and set it back to 1. There seems to be something wrong with the starting value of that map channel. Sorry for that!

Calling for SnowFlow renderings

Our snow plugin SnowFlow has been out for quite a while now and is used all over the world. That's really amazing for us!
