During IBC in Amsterdam when the Autodesk Softimage 2011 Subscription Advantage Pack software was publicized, it was also announced that the Lagoa Multiphysics simulation technology would be brought into the Softimage workflow. Thiago Costa, inventor of the Lagoa solver, has come a long way from the streets of southern Brazil. In his home town there were beaches and fishing boats, but no web, so he says he figured out lots of things by himself. By his own admission, he "learned how to make silly things happen on the computer".
After more than two years in development, Thiago Costa has unveiled Lagoa Multiphysics, an exciting feature addition to Autodesk Softimage, the first application he targeted for his new solver.
