Quick Overview

Particular goes way, way beyond the basics, with realistic natural effects, lighting control for shaded particles, 3D camera integration, custom shapes, depth of field, and physics controls such as air resistance, gravity and turbulence. Particular is used in motion pictures like Spider Man 3 and Angels and Demons. Now supports Adobe Creative Cloud!



Manufacturer Part Number: TCD-PART-UD


Now supports Adobe Creative Cloud!

New in v2.5

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.

New in v2.2

New in v2.1.3

  • Fix an issue with After Effects CS6 not updating correctly for input layers.

What's New

  • Now Available Adobe CS5/64 bit compatibility
  • Version 2 has an updated render engine that exploits the power of multi-core systems
  • More-realistic shading allows spotlights to illuminate particles or logos as they move in 3D space
  • Full 3D rotation allows custom particles to have depth, while expanded physics controls offer more detailed turbulence and expanded support for air resistance

Reasons To Buy

  • 64 bit compatibility provides significant performance gains
  • Version 2 adds the capacity for millions of particles while dramatically increasing render speeds
  • Rich feature set outclasses any other After Effects particle plug-in
  • New Streaklet particle type generates long-exposure light effects as seen in Apple's iPod Nano Remastered commercial
  • Now compatible with After Effects CS5.5

Realistic natural effects
Puffy white clouds, shiny bubbles, swirling dust motes, rain, falling snow, realistic smoke, or flocking birds are all possible within Particular, and you never need to leave After Effects.

Faster rendering in Version 2
The new version can render hundreds of thousands of particles per second by taking advantage of multi-core processors. The new 3D renderer delivers full shading of particles, and yet the engine can be up to twice as fast as previous versions.

Fly through your creations
Go far beyond other plug-ins with Particular's full support for After Effects camera controls and lights. Enhanced custom particle shading offers full 3D rotation and the ability to fly through particles. Emit particles from lights, bounce particles off of 3D layers, or fly around your creations in 3D space.


Sprites and Polygons NEW
Custom particles allow the use of layers as 2D sprites (as in version 1.5) and as the new Textured Polygon type.

Light Me Up NEW
Shade all particle types from up to 128 lights in After Effects. Shading can emulate light falloff to make the lighting results look more natural.

Dynamic Self-shadowing NEW
Shadowlet rendering can cast shadows on both main and aux particles, adding realistic self-shadowing from a single light source.

Advanced Physics Engine IMPROVED
Particular now offers support for glitch free-animation of turbulent properties.

Backward Compatibility NEW
Projects from earlier versions will render with similar results in version 2, but with access to new features and faster output times.

Full Floating-Point Support NEW
Improved bit-depth support now offers high-quality, 32 bit-per-channel rendering, allowing full-range output with HDR results.

User-driven Improvements IMPROVED
Version 2 offers a number of small improvements, including: custom particle layers no longer have to start at the same frame as Particular; a new custom particle time-sampling mode; support for the Adobe color picker; and many other small bug fixes and enhancements.

Auxiliary Particles
In Particular, particles can emit their own particles, enabling objects to leave bright or smoky trails.

Physics Time Factor
Freeze time while moving the camera around in a scene, Matrix-style.

Non-Square Pixels
Particular handles non-square pixel aspect ratios correctly.

Reflection Maps NEW
Textured Polygon particles can use a layer as a reflection map to add dynamic color changes to particles as they rotate in 3D. This feature is ideal for adding glints to rotating particles.

Streak It Up NEW
Streaklet particles resemble long-exposure light effects, as seen in Apple's iPod Nano Remastered commercials.

Transform Your World NEW
The Transform World feature allows the entire workspace to be offset or rotated in 3D space without moving the After Effects camera for increased animation flexibility.

Rotation, Rotation, Rotation NEW
Textured Polygon particles can be fully rotated in 3D space, with random rotation direction and speed. Also, particles can be automatically oriented to the direction of their motion.

Millions and Millions of Particles NEW
The maximum particle limit now allows quick bursts of up to one million particles per second!

Many Views NEW
Orthographic rendering support allows you to view particles from After Effects' built-in camera views (Top, Right, Left, Bottom), making it much easier to adjust particle motion in 3D space.

Presets for SD and HD IMPROVED
Version 2 offers 45 updated presets with support for SD and HD resolution.

Camera Integration
Particular offers complete integration with After Effects' comp camera.

Built-In Help
Extensive user guide features step-by-step examples.

Motion Blur
Built-in motion blur feature lends realism to moving particles.
