How this comming along? I’d love to have particle effects for Daz studio. I’d pay in a heart beat.

We have encountered a slight problem and we are working thru it…Changing the file format from 4.0 to 4.5 screwed up the scene saving…

Are these static effects just for poses or are they animated?

Any word on whether a user could set up a figure as an emitter?

Also, years ago there was a Poser particle emitter called Metaflow which would create particle effects with metaballs (not meatballs!). Any chance we could use metaballs as an emitted particle?

Thanks!

That is in the works..I am trying to figure out collision detecting and special shapes…

Ahhh yes Weird Juice was the creators of said Plugin(I actually was one of the Betatesters for WJ) and I have contacted them to ask about the Plugin and its state and if they might sell me the source Code to incorperate into PFX…

Is it a Renderman effect that is light on the resources? I’m thinking what Alex achieved with the Look At My Hair-plugin.

Nope I will be uploading a DS4.0(Works great) and a DS4.5 Version in 32/64/Mac versions…
As soon as I get the next update I will vontact Blaine Again and see if I can get him to email past buyers for Betatesting and Of course Betatesters now will get the update…

Production of the Plugin unfortunately was in between 2 different versions of DS…
