Forget the long simulation and rendering times normally associated with volumetric 3D cloud construction.
The Elementacular MAYA plugin is simply a material applied to your geometry -
with lightning fast user-controlled fractal generation enabled by powerful GPU acceleration.

Quickly tweak your production quality results without having to re-parameterize.
You maintain full control over the cloud shape through direct manipulation of the underlying geometry –
even after it is converted into a cloud!

And if you want to change the look of your cloud – maybe turn it into a fireball or a special effect -
go ahead and adjust the geometry, lighting or fractal.
All in real-time!
