    But im pretty sure im rendering a phoenixFD simulation with VrayNext right now, using the Defscanline version. Must be something different i think.

    It's PhoenixFD for 3DSMax, not PhoenixFD for Vray. In other words, it will work with he default scanline render engine or V-Ray. So if you are using V-Ray Next and it is set up as the default render engine, PhoenixFD is using it... We don't have DefScanline or V-Ray / V-Ray Next versions.. Only Phoenix versions out there are for 3DSMax and Maya.

    Im sorry if i didnt understood you right or what i said was unclear, english is not my native language. On Chaosgroups PhoenixFD Download Page are multiple Installer Downloads for PhoenixFD. They are for different max versions and (it looks like) for different render engines. Defscanline, Vray 3.6 and VrayNext. Im sure you already know that, i just want to make clear what exactly i mean.
    What im wondering now is, why there are different installers if they are all pretty much the same?

    Ah I see now. I've never bought PhoenixFD so never looked at the download list.. Yes it appears they have PhoenixFD, for use with the default renderer in Max, plus Vray and Vray Next. I imagine the reason should be pretty clear though. If you don't have Vray/Vray Next, then you can use the default scanline version.. HOWEVER

    since Vray can render default scanline materials, I would guess that if you have Vray Next set up as the default render engine (since you say you are using it) and also have the version of PhoenixFD, downloaded from above, why would you have downloaded and installed the default scanline version ? It will probably still work, since it is Vray rendering it and Vray can render default 3dsmax materials, but I imagine it is not optimised and the Vray Next version would probably render much faster...

    Running a simulation, is not the same as rendering though. Running the sim in Max, it won't matter what render engine you have, until you actually render it out.

    Phoenix passes what it creates to Max. Max renders it by passing the data to the renderer.

    If you use Phoenix Scanline, Max is provided enough info to render the data on its own.

    Being a Chaos product, they supply two more versions, one each per major Vray edition.
    In these cases, Phoenix provides specialized modules tuned for those Vray versions. The result is, they can cut corners and speed up the process by interfacing directly with the vray renderer and avoid the overhead of going through Max.

    I just saw that Andy47 beat me to it. So what's new? :)

    To clarify a point:
    If the Phoenix Scanline installations, Max can render it on its own, Vray can render it by getting the data through Max (no special treatment for Phoenix), and any other renderer can also render it the same as Vray does.

    In the Phoenix Vray.x installations, you need Vray to render its data but you'll also get more "correct" results, probably.

    I did some research and it looks like that the scanline version is missing some features like Heat Haze for example, though i never tested if this is the case. Anyway, thank you both for your help, this really confused me.

    @Andy47 i used the scanline just because i didnt know that there were different versions.

    It is the case.

    Volumetric Heat Haze – This method requires V-Ray. Produces the same result as the Volumetric option, but adds a heat haze effect when used with the Heathaze parameter.

    I never realized this is what they call the "mirage" effect nowadays.
    I spent weeks in the early nineties programming it and now it's just some value setting !!
