Krakatoa used for FX in Skyline!

FXGUIDE has a great podcast interview with Hydraulx and their new film "Skyline" which opened in theatres this weekend.

Sounds like they integrated Krakatoa and FumeFX into their pipeline and this film was their most extensive use of Fume and Krakatoa to date!

Congratulations guys, I can't wait to see the movie!

Krakatoa 1.6.0 SP1 Particles Flowing Through Tube Videos on YouTube

Two YouTube videos showing the use of Krakatoa as a pure particle manipulation tool without rendering particles can be found here and here.

In this example, particles saved from Particle Flow are deformed to follow a complex tube and are then loaded back into Particle Flow and released for force application.
