Complete Zibra Liquid functionality

Complete Zibra Smoke & Fire functionality

Dedicated support

Usable on 2 devices with a single-seat license

Cross-platform support: PC, mobile, PC VR & standalone VR devices

Supported Platforms

PCVR with any headset and supported standalone devices:

Zibra Effects Toolkit

Emitters & Voids

Emit liquid, smoke, and fire in any shape. With Zibra Effects smoke & fire functionality, you can also choose from three simulation modes, emitting fire, colored fire, or smoke.


Set up collisions with simple objects, objects of arbitrary shapes, or skeletal meshes. Effortlessly integrate your meshes not just for collisions but for any interaction within the simulation.

Force Fields

Apply force to the simulation to achieve the desired result. Zibra Effects liquid functionality supports radial, directional, and swirl force fields. Smoke & Fire functionality also includes a random force field.


Detect the amount of liquid, smoke, heat, or fuel in the whole volume or part of it. Want to make a flood alarm? You can use Liquid Detector and integrate liquid with your game logic.

Particle Species

Use particle species to mix liquids with different properties or materials. With our custom rendering algorithm, you can expect accurate visuals in respect to liquid mixing.

Multiple illumination options

Light up smoke with point lights or a directional light source. You can have up to 16 point lights in the scene. You can also light up your scene with simulated fire utilizing the fire illumination detection feature.

No time to onboard? Get ready-to-use assets for your project

Choose from a gallery of Zibra Effects assets. No need for lengthy setups - get the plugin, buy the asset, drop it into your scene, and customize according to your needs. Zibra AI assets support BRP, URP, and HDRP pipelines.

How long does it take to learn how to use the plugin?

We want to ensure our users have the smoothest transition to new technology by making our UI as intuitive and simple as possible. That’s why our package includes a sample scene where you can see detailed settings. We also have a tutorial package, dedicated to liquids functionality. You can check it out on our YouTube channel. Smoke & Fire tutorials are coming soon.

Why are you using subscriptions?

Here at ZibraAI, we strive to make virtual worlds more immersive and simplify content creation with easy-to-use real-time simulation tools. This mission requires constant effort related to developing new features, physics improvements, adapting our solution to new platforms and engine changes, and more. Unfortunately, all of it is impossible to do with a one-time purchase model. That’s why Zibra Effects offers subscription options for Indie and Studio users.

What are the differences between Zibra Liquid, Zibra Smoke & Fire & Zibra Effects?

The Unreal Engine version of Zibra Liquids is already available on the Unreal Marketplace. Check it out here. The Pro version is coming soon. Follow our socials not to miss any updates.

What plan should I choose? How to check if I am eligible for Indie or Studio?

When deciding which plan to choose, it's important to assess whether you qualify as an "Eligible Indie User." To be considered eligible under this category, you must meet all of the following conditions:

  • You are either an individual or a legal entity developing a product independently, without the backing of a video game publisher.

  • Your annual revenue, budget, or investments allocated for the development of the product do not exceed USD 100,000.

  • You are not using the software to develop the product on behalf of a third party, following their order or request.

If you satisfy all these criteria, you qualify for the Indie plan. Otherwise, you should consider the Studio plan.

Is there a student version of Zibra Effects?

Yes, there is. To obtain a free Zibra Effects license for educational non-commercial use, you should apply with the form. Please ensure you meet the following requirements:

  • You must be able to provide a valid student ID.

  • You should use an official educational email address.

Upon approval, you can annually renew your subscription by reaching out to us with a current, valid student ID.

Does ZE work only in VR? What about other platforms?

Zibra Effects operates across all supported platforms, irrespective of whether VR is utilized or not. It is designed to function independently, enabling its use in a wide range of applications beyond just VR environments.

How many seats are in one license? Can I purchase multiple seats?

Your license may include multiple seats; the default setting is one seat, which permits activation of the license on a maximum of two computers. The number of seats can be modified in your Stripe user account at any time, both during and after the purchase.

Do I need an active subscription for Zibra Effects to work in Editor and in builds?

An active subscription is required during the development period. Using Zibra Effects within the Unity Editor requires license validation each time you launch it. Without a valid license, you won't be able to run simulations inside the editor. However, you don't need to validate the license on a build machine. Also builds created using Zibra Effects do not incorporate DRM restrictions and never attempt to contact ZibraAI servers for any purpose. This means that once you've built your project, it will never stop working, regardless of your subscription status.
