Magic Particles (Dev) is a professional tool designed in order to provide game developers with an efficient means of adding fire, explosions, smoke and other special effects to their images.
The application works with PTC format files, enabling users to export the visual effects they create in API mode, so they can re-use them in their game's graphics.
Magic Particles (Dev) allows users to create and process special effects by customizing several objects, such as 'Emitters', 'Particle Types', Obstacles', Wind' and other elements.
The 'Emitter' is in fact the place of origin for each particle. Each one requires a series of parameters in order to properly function, namely 'Duration of Emission', 'Speed Factor', 'Randomness', 'Refresh Rate', 'Maximum Particles' and many more.
Magic Particles (Dev) enables users to adjust the 'Emission Direction', the 'Particle Turning Angle', the 'Tint Strength', the 'Zoom Factors', but also the 'Life', 'Number', 'Size', 'Velocity', 'Weight', 'Spin' or 'Visibility' factors of the designed particles. Users can work with several 'Textures', that can influence of appearance of their particles. Similarly, users can employ a variety of colors for the special effects to match the environment they are designed for.
Moreover, with Magic Particles (Dev), users can decorate their own pictures, by setting them as background images, then applying numerous special effects. They can even generate animations, which can be saved as screensaver applications.
The program allows users to modify and adjust the length of the timeline as well as framerate values, so as to completely match their requirements. The created files can be exported to various formats, including AVI, JPG and TGA.
Magic Particles (Dev) is an interesting piece of software that offers comprehensive features and functions, allowing game developers to enhance the appearance of their graphics, but also enabling regular users to apply fun effects to their favorite pictures.
