FluidNinja LIVE is a simulation technology built into the Unreal Engine to create much better water, smoke, clouds and volumetric fog effects. The original version was released last December and received excellent reviews from the developers.
But the technology’s attention has been drawn by a new update that makes the water even cooler. Moreover, with this software, you can even get beautiful and realistic whirlpools. Most importantly, this simulation does not require a shameless amount of miscalculation. What is presented in the video below works in real time.
As one of the users noted on Twitter, if you do such a simulation in Houdini, then the data block will take under 400 GB. It sounds too incredible, but it really is, which is why this technology looks so impressive. And this is not the limit!
If I do this with Houdini it will cost about 400gb data kkkkk amazing

Why use plugins like this in Unreal Engine 4? It depends on what kind of project is being created. It is important to keep in mind that all these are just visual “cherries”, which without addictive gameplay will be just a waste of time.
But if interested, the plugin is worth $ 75 on the Unreal Engine market.
