In an age where consumer expectations are so high for visual beauty and realism, every production company, every FX artist, looks for a creative advantage. Software has become so sophisticated and the talent around the world continues to push for visual excellence.
At Escape we’re always looking for tools to help introduce to the market. Eddy for NUKE is one of those specialist plugins that caught our eye and we’ve been lucky enough to form a relationship with the makers of Eddy.
“VortechsFX is excited to partner with Escape Technology to bring our products to the European market. They come highly recommended to us by large European visual effects facilities, who rely on their continued service. VortechsFX is pleased to utilize their professional services, paired with a deep technical understanding of modern day production pipelines and training needs, to service our customers in Europe.”

In simple terms, Eddy (which was born out of Weta Digital) is a powerful simulation framework that can be easily customised and made to fit a large range of requirements. In essence, Eddy allows for the simulation of complex fires, explosions, and other gaseous phenomena at interactive rates and high quality. The simulation framework is fully GPU accelerated and aims to maximise artist efficiency and visual feedback. This leads to far greater complexity in the final output, bringing true realism to simulations.
Take a look at an article on Endgame, showing how Weta used Eddy.
And you can find out more about how Eddy was used on Game of Thrones on FXGuide.
As we help introduce Eddy to the market we’re happy to set up two week evaluations so you can try this for yourself. Please complete the form below and we can start the process for you.
