Phoenix Fluid Dynamics - by the ChaosGroup (VRay)

I spoke about this plugin last week, well, I have just installed this Demo here, just testing the capability of this out. I like the idea and the price, but can this really make a valid challenge on FumeFX?
Could Chaos - send it in a different direction?

perhaps a combination of Realflow | PF toolbox | FumeFX
would be the target audience for this plugin, a user friendly, simplified particle generation system?

Either way - i will evaluate this shortly.
