Here user can create different types of fluids like water, honey or oil and as a part of fluids a new Space Warp named Motion Field has introduced. It is merely an all-in-one object combined of gravity, wind, noise, drag and geometry. There is also an updated MAXtoA Arnold render plugin which supports fluids rendering, adds point cloud support and also bug fixes.
