Persistant Studios’s PopcornFX finally has a new version with 1.5.5 and offers improved particle effects generation for next gen development and VFX. The middleware offers the benefit of particles that can be fully scripted. An extensive library preset also makes things easier for non-technical artists.

With version 1.5.5, PopcornFX has introduced enhanced performance and optimizations for each platform; a flexible scripting system that makes for rapid prototyping; effects metrics and cost control thanks to its data driven design; and customizable effects attributes for gameplay.

Other highlights include the ability to access effect attributes from evolve scripts; accessing parent particle properties using the new “parent-fields” features; workflow improvements for the editor; and the ability to view details in the content browser.
