Create organic 3D particle effects, complex motion graphics elementsand more
Creating Particle Effects is easier than ever before. Add adjustable blocks with preset behaviours and styles for emitters, particles, physics and aux particles, or add complete, customizable particle effects with a single click. The effects builder gives instant visual feedback, making the building and previewing of effects an intuitive and creative experience.
Particular 2.5 Includes over 130 new Effects Builder presets, giving you over 180 fully-customizable presets for creating fire, spaceflight, fireworks, muzzle flashes, explosions, smoke and more.
Custom particles allow the use of layers as 2D sprites and as Textured Polygons. Particular 2.5 includes over a hundred still and animated sprite images, easily loaded through the new Effects Builder.
Get more control over the size and opacity of particles over life. The new graphing system lets you draw curves and adjust points easily. Draw from scratch, or start with presets and adjust.
The new explode behaviour automates the process of creating explosion effects by removing the need to set keyframes.
Change the aspect ratio of your particles, giving you the ability to stretch or compress the shape or sprite image. Quickly turn spheres into ovals, squares into rectangles, and much more.
Two new Particle types has been added, giving you the ability to create procedurally generated square and circle shaped particles.
Particular 2.5 can render up to 30 Million particles (previously 20 Million), giving you more power, flexibility and particle awesomeness than ever before.
