Cambridge, Mass. – wondertouch by GenArts announced the immediate availability of particleIllusion for After Effects (pIAE) for users of Adobe After Effects on Mac. Available as a plug-in for the first time, particleIllusion for After Effects enables artists to create gorgeous particle effects directly within After Effects, producing a more efficient workflow and enhanced productivity.
Like its standalone sibling particleIllusion 3.0 and pIAE for Windows (now shipping), pIAE for Mac is built on the industry’s most robust 2D particle generation engine. As a result, it features the same speed and ease of use that have made wondertouch products so popular with more than 10,000 compositing artists around the world. In addition, pIAE provides access to the thousands of existing wondertouch emitters -- downloadable presets designed to allow users to create natural, high-quality effects such as smoke, fire, explosions, sparkles, fireworks, and countless abstract effects -- without ever leaving the After Effects environment.
Artists using pIAE for Mac can gain even greater control by using it in conjunction with particleIllusion 3.0. An excellent companion to pIAE, particleIllusion 3.0 grants access to all emitter settings and lower-level parameters such as color gradients, particle images, initial angle settings, and many more. Artists can also create new emitters and libraries, or move emitters between libraries using particleIllusion 3.0.
Pricing and Availability
Regular pricing for pIAE for Mac is $299. wondertouch is currently offering a special upgrade coupon for existing particleIllusion 3.0 customers.
Existing customers can get pIAE for Mac for $179 for a limited time.
