particleIllusion for OS X

wondertouch today announced for the Mac OS X, a standalone, introductory version of the company's 2D, sprite-based particle effects application. It offers artists access to hundreds of customizable preset effects such as smoke, fire, explosions, water effects, sparkles, colorful artistic effects. Version 2.0 features a collection of approximately 750 effects with OpenGL hardware acceleration for realtime (or near realtime) previews of most effects and ultra-fast rendering of final output. It is expected for release later this year ("fourth quarter") for $100. Version 3.0 is expected to ship shortly after the release, according to the company.

wondertouch will also demonstrate beta technology of its particleIllusion 3.0 plug-in for Adobe After Effects. "Cited for the speed and interactivity of its interface which allows artists to quickly and efficiently deliver effects in real- or near-real time, the particleIllusion plug-in will provide motion graphics and visual effects professionals with easy access to the powerful particleIllusion 3.0 software engine." The company expects a Windows version to be released early in the fourth quarter of 2004.
