The FXViz extension nodes let you add realism to your virtual reality or simulation applications.
DEPRECATED: FXViz is deprecated and no longer supported since OIV 9.4.
<font color="#0000FF">NOTE:</font> The classes in this extension do not exist in Open Inventor 10.0 and later.

NOTE: FXViz is a not a separately licensed extension. You must have an OpenInventor license.
Nodes supporting particle systems allow you to generate real-time effects such as fire, chemical flames, explosions, fluid motion, smoke, snow, and more in your application.
The real-time shadows feature that supports object self-shadowing allows you to increase scene realism even further. All or only part of your 3D scene will be involved in computing the shadows.
These features are easy to use and quick to add to your existing or new applications, while still providing a very high frame rate. To achieve this high performance, FXViz uses recent OpenGL extensions (multi-texturing, texture combine environment,...) and as well as OpenGL vendor extensions.
Some examples and demos using this module are supplied in the directory $OIVHOME/examples/source/FXViz.
SoShadowGroup requires the Multi-Texture and Texture Environment Combine OpenGL extensions.
The displayed particles do not modify the Z buffer.
