Paerticles – Why is it and What is it?
Adding particles to your shot can dramatically increase the production value of your footage. Whether it’s snow falling from the sky, pollen looking particles flying with the wind, rain, clouds, or just some tiny particles of dust floating around in the air, it really makes the shot look more expensive and can sometimes be the secret step to make the scene look truly cinematic.
By using Paerticles you can get this look in just two steps; add it on top of your layer and set the blend mode to “screen”, and just like that you changed the look of your film from low-budget to high-budget.
Having the particles in 4k makes it possible even for feature films or commercials ending up on big cinema screens to use this without having to scale it up and lose quality.
But my footage is in 1080p and is not going to be shown on cinema screens?
Then the flexibility of using this product is even better and the benefits are even more. Because this is 4k, in other words 4 times bigger than your 1080p project you can scale, rotate och move around the particles a lot without losing any quality or data at all.
Paerticles contains particle simulations for the following scenarios. Dust particles, snow falling, pollen in wind and rainfall. There is also bonus material with two free cloud animations. All footage is supplied as ProRes 422 HQ at UHD resolution (3840 x 2160 px).
