DIFFERENT FLUID INTERACTIONS
Now it is possible to mix fluids with different properties. This includes not only liquids but all of our multiphysics materials (granular, viscous, viscoelastic) plus rigid and elastic.

VOLUME TAG FOR OBJECTS
Make sure RealFlow always sees your Cinema 4D object exactly the way you want it to. No matter if it is for collisions or emissions.

MORE THAN ONE SCENE IN THE SAME DOCUMENT
You can have more than one scene in case you want to test different variations of your sim, or multiple independent takes for the same project.

MASK PARAMETERS IN EMITTER’S NODES
Avoid the emission of particles inside objects colliding with the fluid.

COLLIDER TAG IMPROVEMENTS
Decide which fluids will collide, set multiple collider tags for the same object or use textures to control collider parameters like the friction.

MESHING OF CACHED FLUIDS
Only mesh your fluids without resimulating everything again. Excellent for fine tuning your mesh until you are happy with its look.

CHILD OBJECTS FLUID’S RANDOM TRANSFORMATIONS
Give your particle instances a more natural look thanks to their variation on position, rotation and scale.

PARTICLE SKINNER DAEMON (DEFORMER)
This Cinema 4D deformer lets your objects adjust their shape to RealFlow particles.

FORCE DAEMONS FALLOFF
Cinema 4D falloffs are now part of RealFlow force daemons, making them more customizable than ever.

KILL DAEMONS FALLOFF
This exclusive feature of RealFlow | Cinema 4D 2.0 lets you decide down to the finest detail where and how particles are killed.

ALEMBIC
Alembic is now the only output format for RealFlow | Cinema 4D. And we have made sure that our files can be directly read by Cinema 4D with the new Axis Setup parameter.

SPLINE EMITTER THICKNESS
The new Thickness parameter for the Spline emitter lets you create thick layers of fluid at just a click away.

FILTER DAEMON
Filter daemon has been improved with the possibility of using expressions, the Vorticity and Emitter ID as a condition of the new Randomness parameters.

FILL EMITTER
New parameter “Fill mode” for Fill emitter to be able to use the same object for emission and collision.


What can RealFlow | Cinema 4D do?

Particle-Object Interaction – Use RealFlow nodes and Cinema 4D colliders together.

C4D splines as RF particle paths – Create splines in Cinema 4D and use them as fluid paths in RealFlow.

C4D materials as emission masks – Use Cinema 4D materials and textures for emitting fluid particles.

Crown splashes on demand – Create and customize crown splashes easily.

Use RF directly with C4D Mograph – Convert RF to thinking particles, use particle instances and tracer objects.

Easily configurable RealFlow wetmaps in C4D – Use a RealFlow WetMap Shader on any Cinema 4D geometry.

Super-fast meshing – Take advantage of a fast and easy-to-configure mesh engine based on the OpenVDB library

The Zacks Analyst Blog Highlights: HEICO, Group 1 Automotive, Rent-A-Center, Repligen and Strategic Education

For Immediate Release Chicago, IL – June 4, 2019 – Zacks.com announces the list of stocks featured in the Analyst Blog. Every day the Zacks Equity Research analysts discuss the latest news and events impacting stocks and the financial markets. Stocks recently featured in the blog include: HEICO Corp. HEI, Group 1 Automotive Inc. GPI, Rent-A-Center Inc. RCII, Repligen Corp. RGEN and Strategic Education Inc. STRA. Here are highlights from Monday’s Analyst Blog: U.S. Heading for Largest Economic Expansion: 5 Top Stocks Finally, May's market mayhem is over. June 2019 promises to bring along fortunes as the United States is on the verge of completing the longest economic expansion. According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the ongoing expansion started back in June 2009. The previous record of longest economic expansion was from March 1991 to March 2001. Fundamentals of the U.S. economy remain strong with no nearby sign of recession. Despite the stock market rout in May, a closer look at the U.S. economy has a different story to tell, with enough reasons for further rally on Wall Street. Stock Market Meltdown Likely Temporary President Donald Trump’s tariff wars against China and Mexico brought back volatility in Wall Street, which otherwise sailing through impressively in the first four months on 2019. In May, the three major stock indexes -- the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite -- plunged 6.7%, 6.6% and 7.9%. However, year-to-date, these indexes are still in the positive territory with gains of 6.4%, 9.8% and 12.3%, respectively. Notably, per Ben Carlson, director of institutional asset management at Ritholtz Wealth Management, a pullback of 5% or more in a month on the S&P 500 Index happened in 65 of the last 70 years. So, a sudden shock last month may well be the much-needed correction in stock markets. U.S. Economy Remains Strong For May 2019, the Conference Board's measure of consumer confidence index stands at 134.1 compared with 129.2 in April. May’s reading is near the 18-year high recorded in November 2018. This indicates that U.S. consumers are highly confident about future growth despite trade concerns. On May 3, the Department of Labor reported that the U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs in April. Year to date, job gains are impressive at 205,000 on an average per month. Unemployment fell to 3.6% compared with the consensus estimate of 3.8%. This marks the lowest level of unemployment since December 1969. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index came in at 16.6 in May, a massive gain from the reading of 8.5 in April. The index was the highest in four months in May. Notably, any reading above zero indicates improving conditions. The employment index grew to 18.2, the highest in five months. The prices index was at 17.5, the lowest in 17 months. Fed Maintains Dovish Stance The Federal Reserve has decided to keep the federal funds target rate unchanged in the range of 2.25-2.50% at least for the time being. The central bank also said that it will not downsize its $4 trillion balance sheet this year. Per the Fed, although U.S. economy is in solid footing, trade-related concerns may result in global economic slowdown which will reduce the growth rate of the U.S. economy. Moreover, core PCE inflation index – Fed’s favorite inflation gauge – increased 1.6% in April, well below the central bank’s target rate of 2%. Muted inflation and the likelihood of a reduction of U.S. economic growth may compel Fed to reduce interest rate, much to the delight of President Trump. The Trump administration is constantly blaming the central bank for its aggressive monetary stance as the major hindrance of economic growth.
