Watched the Particle Illusion webinar today, thanks for presenting that and thanks to Dan Harvey.
I was inspired to try out PI for the first time. I am using Continuum 2019 12.0.2 as an OFX plugin inside Davinci Resolve 15.3 on a Win 10 box.
First thing I noticed was that rather than the “thousands of factory installed emitters”, I have only about a dozen or so “sample” emitters. I understand that I can download more emitters but I did not quite catch what Dan said about that. Are the thousands of factory installed emitters only in the standalone version?
Following up on that, I see that the download of the emitters is designated 12.0.1. Do these work properly in 12.0.2?
I should ask, should they work properly? Because although my Win 10 box has 64GB RAM and 2x 1080ti GPUs, Particle Illusion OFX ran very slowly and crashed fairly often.
That said, I was eventually able to create a pyrotechnic effect by replicating Dan’s workflow and it’s an impressive tool, or at least it has a lot of potential if the performance and reliability can be improved.
Thanks again for the webinar and for any clarification you can provide on my questions.
