SOuP/OpenVDB -

Our products provide a vast framework that brings a tonne of new functionality to Maya. Based on the principles of a flexible, non-destructive procedural pipeline, this enables artists to achieve results impossible to accomplish with standard techniques, at the same time improve efficiency by minimizing the need to write computer code during production.

SOuP/OpenVDB integrates with most of Maya's existing architecture allowing modellers, texturers, animators and FX artists the control they need to build flexible shots which can be easily modified and updated when required.

We provide a large repository of scene examples to reverse engineer and a whole lot of videos to get you started, plus we have an active forum if you're looking for more specialised help.
