Particle | idiot question (from me)


Brand new to Optics. When I purchased the license, I was prompted to subscribe to the BorisFX newsletter, and by doing so, would get a free license for Particle. At least, I think that’s what I saw.

Long story short, I was emailed a link, installed the product and then realized a fundamental question - Does this even work for still photographers? Or is this a product for video/animation/etc.?

Thanks in advance for your clarification!

@images Particle Illusion is for video.

Thanks Marco.

I thought that that was the case, but had to try…


There is a free standalone version of Particle Illusion and you can definitely use it to render still images with alpha to bring into Photoshop!
