Magic Particles is an application that can help you create a wide array of special effects. It comes packed with a preset list of special effects and many export options to ensure that you can later use the generated effects with other applications. Since the program provides the possibility of saving the final results as a sequence frame or video file, you can use these effects even in video games.
The user interface may seem a bit overwhelming at a first glance, but this is only because the program bundles many useful options.
You can choose a special effect included in the preset list, or you can create one from scratch.
It is possible to generate emitters, and each item has its own settings and diagram parameters. You can control the particle emitting area and the direction movement, thanks to the built-in dedicated tools.
You can add any number of particle types inside an emitter, and it proves to be pretty easy to move and copy folders, emitters and types of particles in any place, thanks to the “drag and drop” support.
The program offers a real-time preview of the special effects, and it is able to display each adjustment that you have applied on your project very quickly.
You can export the generated files to the following files formats: AVI, PNG, TGA, JPG, and others. Moreover, you can export separate frames and choose the rate for the video recording.
During our testing, we have noticed that the application manages to carry out a task pretty quickly and without errors.
To sum things up, Magic Particles proves to a reliable tool when it comes to creating a wide range of special effects.
