X-Particles contains a system of close control over almost all parameters using Questions and Actions. No Xpresso is required and everything is done through Cinema’s Object and Attribute Managers in the same way as for other objects. The system works by asking a ’Question’ of each particle – for example, does the particle age exceed a specified value. If the particle ‘passes’ the Question, an Action is called which has an effect on the particle, Most Actions work through the particle modifiers but others are independent of them.
New X-Particles version 2 previews
(May 5th 2013) There are two extensive preview videos now available. They can be found on the version 2 teaser page. They demonstrate in detail some (yes, just some!) of the new features in version 2.
(April 19th 2013) X-Particles version 2 is nearly here! V2 is a massive upgrade to X-Particles and will be released in the next few weeks. For more details please see the version 2 teaser page.
Existing users of X-Particles will be able to buy an upgrade to v2 at lower cost than just the difference between the cost of the two versions.
More details to follow!
