Fall in Love with particleIllusion 3.0New ProEmitters from wondertouch
When time is of the essence - especially for some editors and compositors, who might not have the luxury of spending days or even hours to devote to an animated background or lower third name plate - the new Pro Emitters from wondertouch.com are a life saver.
There are 90 new emitters in the new set (making 12 pro emitter libraries total and 360 different emitter presets now). But I think that the most important element to note is how easy it is to use these with particleIllusion 3.0.
Of course, if you know how to use particleIllusion well, you can open up an endless supply of animations for any occasion. But what about the wedding videographer who wants to create heart backgrounds for client videos (or DVD menus) - something new that newlyweds haven't seen 101 times already. For $500 they could purchase a single element of footage to use. But for much less, they could own particleIllusion ($389) with the new Pro Emitter library (Hearts=$39) and create custom backgrounds, vignettes or lower third name banners with a click of a button.
Modifications to the particle animations are easy and the results are spectacular.
Click on the movie below to see how you can create your own CUSTOM animation with particleIllusion and the new Pro Emitter for Hearts in about 4 minutes (includes me blabbering, looking at preset variations and render time).. so you can probably make a custom animation yourself in a minute (including render time!)).
