Features of Red Giant Trapcode Particular Plugin:

Multiple Forms:

This Multiple form feature explores endless creative possibilities combining multiple Forms (particle grids or OBJ-based systems) in the same 3D space. Create beautiful, complex effects through the interaction of different forms, all within one instance of Form. 

Cinema 4D File Import:

Cinema 4D File Import uses .c4d file 3D geometry as emitters. Supported Geometry properties include animation and transformations (rotation, position/translation, and scaling).

Reflection Maps:

Reflection Maps create dynamic color changes in your textured polygon particles by using layers as a reflection map. Add glints to particles as they rotate in 3D.

Sprites and Polygons:

With this feature, you can use any image in your composition as a particle by assigning it to a 3D sprite. Particular includes over 260 still and animated sprite images, quickly loaded directly within After Effects or in the Designer via the Sprite Loading Panel.

430 Plus Presets:

Particular includes preset that show off powerful features like fluid dynamics, behaviors, and more with over 430 fully-customizable Designer presets. Explore the library to find beautifully designed effects for creating fluids, text, fire, spaceflight, fireworks, muzzle flashes, explosions, smoke, and more. Save your own presets and share them across your facility.

Lighting and Shadows:

This feature will Shade all particle types from lights in After Effects. Shading can emulate light falloff, and Shadowlet rendering can cast shadows on both primary and aux particles.

Multiple Systems:

This Multiple System feature allows you to explore endless creative possibilities when combining multiple particle systems in the same 3D space. Create beautiful, complex effects through the interaction of different systems, all within one instance of Particular. Emitters in Multi-system setups can share parameter settings can save as a single preset.

Velocity Over Life:

Particles with velocity over life effect well set to change their speed several times during a simulation using a Velocity Over Life curve. Start particles off slow, so they stick to their emission point before speeding away, or have them start fast, slow down, and speed up again over their lifetime. Great for use with text and 3D Object-based emitters.

OBJs as Emitters:

Particle systems can use 3D models and animated OBJ sequences as particle emitters. You can choose to emit particles from the vertices, edges, faces, or volume of your OBJ file for added flexibility. Choose from Particular’s library of over 60 OBJs, or quickly load your models using the new OBJ Loading Panel directly in After Effects or within the Designer.

Mask Emitter:

Using masks as an emitter makes it easy to create uniquely shaped emitters or to use parts of an image as the source of particle emissions—no precompiling is required. Create write-on effects by controlling the reveal of particles along mask paths.

Text Emitter:

Use text as an emitter to speed up the creation process dramatically. No precompiling required. Create write-on effects by controlling the reveal of particles along text paths.

Behaviors- Meander: 

The Meander behavior allows individual particles to wander about like people in a shopping mall or to have variances in speed like cars in different lanes of traffic. Meander’s influence over your animation is affected by the Mass of particles and can be used to add some excellent individual movement to each particle. Meander can also create complex group motion when combined with other features and behaviors, such as Flocking.

GPU Accelerated:

Get fast feedback with Trapcode Particular’s GPU Acceleration through OpenGL. Depending on your system and setup, you could see speed boosts of up to 4X.

3D Camera and Lights:

Particular uses After Effects’ 3D Camera and Lights so you can fully integrate your particle Effects with your motion graphics and live-action VFX shots.
