Add bursting blobs of color that bloom and pulsate or digital decay with corrupted, stuck frames. Combines seamlessly with other Sapphire damage effects inside S_Effect and S_Transition.
Breathe life into every frame with the new Sapphire Dust Effect. S_Dust is blazing-fast, replicates the look of a simple particle simulation without the complexity, and includes rich, user-friendly controls.
It’s perfect for adding a touch of photorealism to CG renders, creating a cinematic atmosphere, and enhancing motion graphics. Set the mood with a few shimmering specks or unleash a turbulent sandstorm.
