August Emitters are out - and amazing!

I just have to say that whilst the standard of monthly emitters is very high, you've really excelled yourself on the August emitters! >8o)

Thanks to all who contributed - Christmas has come early!

Kind regards

The main reason they are so good (if you agree that they are) is that Tony Hudson contributed some great animated particle shapes. Thanks Tony!

Also, I noticed that there may be a problem with the first emitter (the "volume dust cloud" I think it's called). When put on the stage, it may not show up! Or, it may show once, then won't show again after playback repeats.

The solution seems to be to increase the particle type "number" value from 3 to 6 or so.

I second the motion of congratulations. I had also forgotten (whud??) to get the July ones, and both of these show the increasing refinement going on in Wondertouch-Land.

Since part of my project involves Earth/landscape beauty passes over terrain, the slow-moving clouds in the July batch was of particular interest. But the Fireworks in the August one and pretty much all of them are great.

The only problem is...

Over-choice: too much candy in the Wondertouch emitter store, so to speak :)
Just kidding. The more great raw material to work with, the better.

Once 3.0.2 is released (and 3.0.6 on Mac) this will be a thing of the past, since you'll be able to check for, download, and install new libraries from within pI3.

Nice addition Alan!

Any chance the Catalog can also be auto-downloaded to make for easy emitter browsing inside PI3? (*cough*PI3 Bridge has a certain ring to it) >9o)

The new PI view is exactly what you need to browse your emitter libraries. If you're like me who sorted the libraries into types like "Fire", "water" etc then finding a certain emitter can sometimes take some time since there must be well over 1800 emitters by now. You can search for any emitter and then view them in the same window. In PI View you can then toggle "deflectors", "motion blu" and a heap of other valuable options.

There's an easy solution to the problem with the first emitter (Volume dust cloud 01. After you add it to the screen open its properties then go to the go to the sub emitter "fluffCloud," turn it off and then on again and the cloud immediatley becomes visible.
