wondertouch To Demo particleIllusion Software At SiggraphparticleIllusion solution for generating particle effects (June 10, 2004)
wondertouch LLC, a software developer specializing in particle effects for the visual effects industry, invites members of the press and conference attendees to Siggraph 2004 -- August 10 through August 12 -- to stop by its booth (# 912) where it will demonstrate its particleIllusion product line.
wondertouch's highly acclaimed particleIllusion 3.0 is fast emerging as the standalone industry-leading application for creating realistic and spectacular particle effects. Earlier this year at the NAB 2004 convention, wondertouch announced development of a particleIllusion plug-in for Adobe After Effects which met with overwhelming enthusiasm from show attendees. This month, wondertouch also introduced a limited-time upgrade promotion for owners of Discreet combustion 3 to receive more than 50% off the USMRP of particleIllusion 3.0.
Cited for its power, speed and ease-of-use, particleIllusion is now used by digital media professionals working in film post-production and pre-visualization, commercial broadcast, game cinematics, standard and HD video, and Web graphics, at more premier facilities and independent boutiques than ever before including Blizzard, DKP Studios, Eden FX, Frantic Films, Northern Lights Post, Pacific Title & Art Studio, Pixel Magic, Radical Entertainment, Rainbow Studios, Turner Studios, and many others.
At Siggraph, professionals active in the wondertouch community will host product demonstrations in the wondertouch booth to provide attendees with how-to's and tips that highlight ways to maximize the use of particleIllusion products in the creation of spectacular visual experiences.
particleIllusion 3.0, the latest version of the software, currently available on the Windows operating system, is wondertouch's cornerstone sprite-based particle effects software application. Most recently the popular particle effects tool was deployed on the feature films "Hellboy," "The Matrix Revolutions" and "Master and Commander"; the just-released new Beastie Boys music video, "Ch-Check It Out"; the hugely popular "Star Trek: Enterprise" television series; and much more.
particleIllusion Plug-in for Adobe After Effects
wondertouch will demonstrate late stage beta of the particleIllusion plug-in solution for Adobe After Effects. The plug-in will afford motion graphics and visual effects professionals ability to easily access the powerful and highly acclaimed particleIllusion 3.0 engine from directly within the After Effects environment to efficiently add and modify effects from the huge particleIllusion library of preset effects such as smoke, fire, explosions, water effects, sparkles, colorful artistic effects, and many others.
particleIllusion 3.0 & particleIllusion 2.0 SE for Mac OS X
Siggraph will also mark the first time that users will get a look at the Mac OS X versions of particleIllusion. At the time of the show, wondertouch is scheduled to release particleIllusion 2.0 SE for OS X. This version is based on the particleIllusion 2.0 engine -- an older, less-feature rich version of the software -- designed as an introductory version for Mac users. A preview of the beta version of particleIllusion 3.0 on the Mac OS X is also scheduled.
wondertouch software demonstrations will take place daily in booth #912 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Exhibition Hours are Tuesday, August 10, 10 am - 6 pm Wednesday, August 11, 10 am - 6 pm Thursday, August 12, 10 am - 5 pm.
