  Unable to Activate Fume FX Sim Licenses
Posted by: shawnolson - 03-05-2023, 06:51 PM - Forum: FumeFX [max] - Replies (2)

My longtime server finally died and I am moving all licenses to a new server. I was able to activate FumeFX, DreamScape and Afterburn. But when I try to activate the FumeFX SL licenses, it hangs and never works.


Any help would be appreciated.

  FumeFX General Questions

Hi, I am interested in buying FumeFX for Maya, but have a few questions.
Hi, I am interested in buying FumeFX for Maya, but have a few questions.

1) Would I buy FumeFX 5.0 [maya] Workstation OR FumeFX 5.0 [maya] Workstation and FumeFX Simulation + 5 Shaders bundle?

2) I have an AMD Ryzen 16 core with 64GB of RAM and a GEForce GTX 1080 Graphics Card. Is that sufficient? to run FumeFX or painfully slow?

3) Compared to Maya's Bifrost fluid system to create fire and smoke, is FumeFX more difficult to learn, easier, or about the same?

  Installation problem
Posted by: Garry Clarke - 02-08-2023, 06:28 PM - Forum: AfterBurn - Replies (6)


I'm trying to get Afterburn installed (Max 2022, Win 10) I already have FumeFX installed and running OK.

I ran the installer as an Administrator and it seems to have installed fine. However when I run Max I get the following error:

DLL <C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2022\Plugins\AfterWorks\AfterBurn\Afterburn.dlr> failed to initialize.
Error Code 127 - The specified procedure could not be found.

I've checked the Afterburn plugins folder and there are 4 files there:

There is no Afterburn in my Environment and Effects dialog. But I do have Afterburn Glow and also Sticky Particles.

  FumeFX Install Fail "The remote procedure call failed"
Posted by: Imatk - 01-19-2023, 02:32 AM - Forum: FumeFX [max] - Replies (1)

When I try to install fumefx (seems to be the only one with this issue... so far) it fails with this error:

"Setup failed to run installation: The remote procedure call failed."

I have gone to services and verified that the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is running.

The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator is running.

But I can't install this program.

Never ran into this before so hoping someone here has and knows what the heck is going on.

Also if I run the install without right-clicking and using "Administrator" option it fails with a different error:

"Error installing iKernel.exe: Files accessed"

Not sure if that helps... but also never had that happen either.

I haven't heard back from the support email from Sitnisati and it's becoming absolutely RIDICULOUS that this thing isn't working.

I now am starting to understand why people have gone to Houdini for an all-in-one solution.

Been trying to get this to work for MONTHS.

I have very little faith that anyone here will know how to fix this issue... but I'm desperate and since I can't get the actual staff to reply I'm hoping someone else here has run into the same problem.

  FumeFX 5.1.3 [max] update
Posted by: Kresimir Tkalcec - 11-30-2022, 10:32 AM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies


During FumeFX 6 beta testing we have discovered that there is a bug in Voriticiy I code which caused a lot less detail than expected.
This bug is fixed and included in FumeFX 5.1.3 update that's been released today.

- FumeFX crash on low voxel count.
- Vorticity I didn't work properly. It now creates more detail.
- [<<] arrow on fxd channel export was broken. Only doubleclick worked.

- Sharpening of fire and temp channels for the FumeFX Arnold/Redshift shader was not working.

As the title says.

I'm getting this error when trying to install the plugin for max.

"Setup fialed to run installation: The remote procedure call failed."

I'm running as an administrator.

I'm running Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise

This is happening on every plugin I try to install for fume.

FumeFX 5, and also tried the beta FumeFX 6

Thanks for any help!
