I saw the news on your site today about Particle Illusions coming back into being later this year. As a years-long user of the software, this news filled me with great joy as I am struggling to keep my old version still running on todays computers. Particle Illusions is a key tool in my creative toolkit and so news of an updated version is truly awesome…
After reading the news about it over and over, I see that the new Particle Illusions is to be included with Continuum 12 and Continuum Particles Unit. When I look at both versions of this software, they talk about “host software”, packages that they integrate with. I have none of the software listed.
Particle Illusions was a standalone piece of software that I could take my footage into, apply the particles to and then export out the new SFX footage from. My joy at the news of the new Particle Illusions coming out later this year is now shadowed by concerns that I won’t be able to use it as the vibe I’m getting is the new Particle Illusions will require a host application in order to work!
So I’m wondering if some light can be shed on this… My hope is that Particle Illusions will not need a host application to work, that it will have a standalone version along side it’s plug-in versions. Can you let me know if this is the case? Fingers crossed here for some great news (X)!!
