particleIllusion 3.0 for Mac OS X released

wondertouch has announced that new versions for its particleIllusion
line of products are now available for Mac OS X. The updates to the
particleIllusion 3.0 standalone particle effects application (and the
particleIllusion SE cut-down version) provides ways to quickly and
easily create complex effects: explosions, smoke, fire, sparkles,
motion graphics backgrounds, space effects, creatures, and abstract
artistic effects.

New features and enhancements include integrated rendering (in
particleIllusion 3.0 only) and tighter integration with
pIllusionRender, wondertouch’s standalone renderer, which allows for
automatic rendering of HD and other large-format output

The software gains support for Mac OS X 10.5 'Leopard'. It also still supports Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4.

The Emitter Library AutoUpdate functions provides an easy way to
check for, download, and install the particleIllusion emitter libraries
that are provided free-of-charge by wondertouch each month.

particleView, wondertouch’s emitter viewer application, features a
new search engine to help users find particle emitters within the vast
particleIllusion library collection which currently numbers over 2500
emitters for particleIllusion 3.0 and over 2000 emitters for
particleIllusion SE.

The new Quick Load Library function makes switching between particleIllusion emitter libraries faster and easier.

Registered owners of particleIllusion 3.0 and particleIllusion SE
can download updates free-of-charge from the wondertouch website, or by contacting

For more information see the Wondertouch Web site.
