wondertouch announced the immediate availability of new Professional Emitter Libraries for particleIllusion 3.0 on Wednesday. Six new libraries for the particle animation application are available, each with 30 different emitters, and include effects like explosions, auroras, and breaking glass, motion graphics and artistic backgrounds, and text and abstract effects.
wondertouch offered a description for each library:
Abstract This library includes very creative, organic, and beautiful
emitters useful in composing backgrounds and adding graphics elements.
Most of these emitters involve flowing, wavy, colorful designs that
change over a very long period of time.
Text and Logo In this library, "logo emitters" - some of the most asked-about emitters available for particleIllusion - feature text or a logo that rotates, streams, converges, etc.
Artistic Backgrounds This library features a wide variety of animated background emitters, covering a range of styles from slow and subtle to wild and wavy which can be used alone or combined for added variety.
Graphics and Distortions This library shows off the diversity of effects possibilities using particleIllusion and contains "graphics" elements and amazing examples of "distortions" - effects meant to be used on background footage.
Eclectic 01 This library showcases a fantastic collection of real-world effects: fireballs, explosions, and smokes; "space" effects including wormholes and cosmic phenomena; and a few "graphics arts" style emitters that utilize numbers and simple shapes in very complex ways.
Eclectic 02 This is the second library collection of realistic and useful effects including dirt, falling debris, breaking glass, clouds, auroras, and frosts.
The Professional Emitter Libraries are available at the wondertouch Web site, and are priced at US$39 each, or $175 for the complete six-library set.
