Krakatoa for Autodesk Maya (also known as Krakatoa MY or KMY for short) is a volumetric particle rendering plugin inplemented using the C++ Interface to Thinkbox Software’s Krakatoa renderer for Linux, Mac OSX and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
The first public Build 22.214.171.124419 was released on February 21st, 2013. Note that the release number matches the Krakatoa core renderer version shared with Krakatoa MX and Krakatoa SR. All Krakatoa implementations share the same rendering core and should produce identical, pixel-exact output given the same particle data and settings. The latest build is v126.96.36.199157 released on December 17th, 2013.
Krakatoa MY is fully integrated in the Maya User Interface. It implements various dedicated scene objects like a PRT Loader for loading particles from external file sequences, PRT Volume and PRT Surface for converting geometry volumes and surfaces to point clouds. v2.3.0 introduced support for the Magma node-based channel editing system, allowing complex operations on large numbers of particles, data acquisition from other particles and scene meshes and so on.
