This is just a quick test rendering Nparticles in Maya.
Particles are driven through fluid interpolation and expressions. Used 70,000 particles. 2 minute per frame. Plan on testing .5 million to see how long render time takes. Trying to achieve the Krakatoa look in Maya.

Fluid container size is 20 x 10 x 20.
Res is 60 x 30 x60
