Krakatoa for Cinema 4D

Krakatoa is Thinkbox Software's particle renderer, designed to take
an existing particle field and use it to produce wispy, ethereal forms, like plasma or gaseous fluids. The key thing with Krakatoa is that the particles react realistically to light, so not only does it produce beautiful, shadowed volumetric results, but you also get precise control over the look simply by moving and tweaking your lights.
