Mocha's tracking now includes 4 new spline tools including a magnetic tool, edge-snapping splines, and geometric shapes for even faster masking.
Revamped Emitter Library
Particle Illusion's Emitter Library is home to thousands of professionally designed presets to get users up-and-running fast. Simply double- click an emitter to add it to the scene!
Users also have the option to customize, save, and share new presets amongst other team members who have Continuum 2020 or the Particle Illusion Unit.
The Emitter Library now includes a handy search function and has been rewritten, allowing users to access an unlimited number of emitters without needing to reload libraries.
Edit Particle Color Quickly
Love a preset but want to tweak the color? The Properties Group now lets you easily edit particle colors to help you create your perfect look.
Over-Life Particle Color And Alpha Color
Instantly tweak color and alpha gradients. Users now have control over the colors particles adopt over the life of the particle. Create a particle gradient with user-defined stops. Use the alpha values to pulse particles on and off or gradually fade over time.
Particle Illusion can be run as a standalone application, but rendering is only available as a plug-in. Artists and Editors can use the standalone to create and save a preset effect outside a host application and then can render that saved effect from inside a host timeline.
