particleIllusion Overview

The award-winning particleIllusion particle effects engine is one of the fastest and easiest ways to add high-quality effects to your visual compositions. Its speed, power, and ease-of-use make it a go-to tool in any visual industry. Meanwhile, the huge library of preset “emitters” allow artists at any experience level to create amazing visual effects with little effort.
