We Interview Wondertouchs Alan Lorence at SIGGRAPH 2007

By David Basulto

Once thing I love about going to conventions is seeing familiar faces again. One such face is Alan Lorence, AKA Mr. Particle Illusion. Alan is so dedicated to his company Wondertouch and it shows in his ?wonderfully useful particle application particleIllusion.

Since the first time I tried the program out and made some simple fireworks for a project to the planning of its use in my upcoming feature, particleIllusion has been a great go to product for me. Not only is it easy to learn, it is extremely customizable. If you ever wanted to add particles from water, fire, explosions or even the new hearts I highly recommend giving particleIllusion a go.

Alan took a few minutes to discuss the current Pro Emitters release (Pyro 1 and 2, Hearts) and to give us a taste as to whats in store for particleIllusion. You can download a demo at
