Trapcode Particular - Multiple Systems

Multiple Systems

For the first time ever, explore endless creative possibilities when you combine multiple particle systems in the same 3D space. Create beautiful, complex effects through the interaction of different systems, all within one instance of Particular. Emitters in Multi-system setups can share parameter settings (such as turbulence, gravity and more), and can be saved as a single preset.

OBJs as Emitters

Give your particle systems a new dimension by using 3D models and animated OBJ sequences as particle emitters. For added flexibility, you can choose to emit particles from the vertices, edges, faces or volume of your OBJ file. Choose from Particular’s library of over 60 OBJs, or easily load your own models using the new OBJ Loading Panel directly in After Effects or within the Designer.

Trapcode Particular - Sprites and Polygons

Sprites and Polygons

Use any image in your composition as a particle by assigning it to a 2D sprite or textured polygon. Particular 3 now includes over 270 still and animated sprite images, easily loaded directly within After Effects or in the Designer via the new Sprite Loading Panel.

Aux System

Spawn new child particles through Particular’s Aux system. Create organic trails and branching, or build splashes after a bounce. Particular 3’s updated Aux system now includes the ability to add custom particles for even more variation, as well as keyframable parameters for more control.
