Is there a way to save one image of the particle effect with an alpha background to use in 3D application for still renders. Thanks
Particle Illusion does not have a mechanism to directly export still images. You could export a short ProRes movie from PI with embedded alpha and then export a still from that movie in some other app. Or you can use the plugin version of PI and let your host export a still. Note that depending on the particle look you may need to composite it with apply modes in the final app to get the type of edges you want.
Ok thanks for the reply. I understand what you mean about exporting a short still from an app. I will play around with this and see what I come up with.
