Navie Effex Gone?

Recommended Posts

Navie formerly DPit Nature Spirit makers of a fantastic fluid simulator appears to have closed its doors. Samir, the owner has been incommunicado for some time and now the website has gone. Anyone know what's happening?

 

I hope Samir is OK, he sounded an incredibly sound software engineer and all round decent bloke and not having his simulation tools from this point forward would be a sad loss to C4D.

 

I wonder if MAXON has bought him out? One can only hope...

Agreed to hoping MAXON bought it because the alternative isn't good.

A very strange situation not to inform customers what's going on even if walking away from the business.

 

I hope Samir hasn't had a misfortune.

There's something not right about this story, he had a female partner in the business handling customer service so there should be absolutely no reason why users are left in limbo wondering what's happening.

 

There's been no activity on his Facebook and GitHub page since last year, I hope the worst hasn't happened as he wasn't an old guy.

He is not dead. He is in the hospital though. That's all I know. Somebody from Insydium got in contact with him, but that's all they could share.

Thanks for updating the thread to end the speculation. I'm sorry to hear Samir is in hospital and it must be a very serious condition if he's been in all this time. 

 

Get well soon Samir, sincerely wishing you the best.

This is very sad. I have never owned Navié FX, but always admired Samir's work - it's a fantastic achievement. Hopefully, all will be well with him and if he has had to shut down, MAXON will buy FX and continue developing it.
