Fluid FX. Autodesk has been producing software for years and is responsible for some of the greatest Hollywood special effects. Now you can create these kinds of realistic effects in the palm of your hand with the Fluid FX universal app. Here is how Autodesk describes it:
"Powered by the Academy Award®-winning fluid dynamics technology from Autodesk® Maya, Fluid FX puts you in control of a real-time simulation using up to 10 multi-touch points. Shoot fire from your finger tips. Create ultra-realistic smoke that floats, falls, and flows with gravity. Warp, swirl, and ignite photos from your image library. Create amazing and hilarious warped pictures and save them to your photo library or experiment with realtime smoke and fire to create awesome imagery."While you may want to compare Fluid FX to some of the other photo-distortion apps in the App Store, this is really much more. You get much finer detail, more lifelike images and a lot more control over the finished product. Autodesk Fluid FX today and impress your friends with your great graphic-design skills tomorrow.
