ParticleMetrix ships

Noise Industries and Idustrial Revolution have launched a new particle generation plug-in, ParticleMetrix, for visual effects applications. The plug-in works with Apple's Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express and Motion, along with Adobe's After Effects CS3 and CS4. ParticleMetrix is based on FxFactory and converts objects and text into particle effects, such as snow, fire, ice, bubbles, sparkles and more. The plug-in provides a library of pre-designed effects, with controls for rotation, size, gravity and other custom settings.

Other features include one-click animations with keyframe precision, along with gravity control in all three spatial axes. ParticleMetrix includes 50 presets and offers thumbnail previews for quick previewing. The software is also optimized for Apple hardware for faster renders.

ParticleMetrix requires FxFactory 2.0.8 (a free install), Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and works with either Apple Final Cut Studio 2, Final Cut Express 4, Motion 3.0 or Adobe After Effects CS3 or CS4. Customers can purchase the plug-in for $100.
