Just a heads up...

Just compiled the first 32bit option for DS4.5 and 64 bit and Mac to follow...
New tutorials and a few new options....

Pics and Vids to follow soon..

We used to have a post on the old forums that showed the tests and Pcs of Particle FX in action…

I have 6 new Video Tutotials in the works that will show how to take the basic versions of the plugins and make them work for you….Complete viewable inside of DS while you have DS open…

1.I will show you how to make a very realistic fire aka campfire inside DS…
2.Dragon Fire…I will show you how to Tweak your settings to achieve different fire effects and colors….
3.I also will show how to use ambience as your friend…
4.I show how to make your own Presets useing the Particle Pane…Going from fire to smoke and all in between...(Very happy to indroduce Smoke stack Preset that is great for animations that use smoke and or Vessels smoke like the Titanic smoke stacks)
5.I show how to use the Effects in an animation..
6.biggest thing is I show you how to use Paint Shop Pro and or Photoshop or a freeware program like Gimp to make your own Effects and how to implement them thru the ParticleFX plugin…

As an extra bonus I show folks how to use the DS Effects in Byrce as an animation complete from import to final Render of animation…

    If you have need for one more tester, I would love to.

    If you need to make something idiot-proof, I know of no greater idiot than myself. *smile*

    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.
