Trapcode Particular - Getting Started

User Guide for Trapcode Particular

This user guide has been designed to help you get comfortable with all of the tools and features of Trapcode Particular. This guide is organized in a similar logical flow to what you find in the Particular interface, after a few “warm-up” sections that provide an overview of the whole plugin.

There are three introductory sections, Getting Started, Overview of Particular, and Overview of the Interface.
Following which, we jump into Particular and learn about the Designer. All of the main components of the Designer have their own separate page.

Then we learn about the powerful Multiple Systems feature.

From there, we learn about different sections of the plugin in the same groupings that we find them in the Particular UI - Emitter, Particle, Physics, and so on.
