Using Maya for Simulation (Fire, Smoke, Dust, etc)

Here are some useful YouTube videos for using Maya to create simulations, such as Fire, Smoke, Dust, Explosions, Clouds, etc. They all seem to use MAYA BIFROST.

Please note Maya Bifrost doesn’t seem, in my experience, to be particularly widely used. Instead, the ‘industry standard‘ for these sorts of simulation effects is Houdini. If you are looking to learn Bifrost, you may want to first do some more research – and it may be more beneficial to learn Houdini if you want photorealistic effects. Another option is Embergen.

 

What is Maya Bifrost?

Bifrost for Maya is a little confusing.  Bifrost was initially released in 2019, and it seems like it was split into:

  • BOSS (Bifrost Ocean Simulation System)
  • Bifrost Fluids” (inc “Bifrost Liquids“, “Bifrost Aero“)

But then something called “Bifrost Extension” (aka “Bifrost Graph”) was released. The Maya 2024 manual seems to recommend that you should use “Bifrost Extension” (aka “Bifrost Graph”) instead of the old bifrost system.

Here’s the official explanation, from their manual:

Bifrost for Maya includes the existing Bifrost features, Bifrost Fluids and BOSS, plus the new Bifrost Graph, a node-based environment for building procedural graphs to create effects such as fire, smoke, explosions, and even sand and snow. Also included is a command line tool that can execute a graph independently of Maya.
