I've asked Boris FX about a self-registering patch for us particleillusion 3 users

Just an FYI. I have sent Boris FX an email asking if they plan on creating a self-patch or something so all of us valid licensed users of pi3 can continue to use the software if the registration servers no longer allow pi3 to be activated. (Similar to what Adobe did to all of us Serious Magic software users. They released a self-registering Patch that registered the software standalone!)

GenArts never answered my question and I hope that Boris FX will answer and provide something to us now that it seems that our particleillusion program is now listed under "Legacy" products.

I have also asked Boris FX to provide ALL Emitters that were once on the Wondertouch page, but I see they still have not updated their download page. Instead, they sent me an email with 2 links but that is not the same thing.

I really hope that Boris FX does the right thing since I was promised this from Alan Lorence back in 2007 - 2008. I kept my email as proof just in case Boris FX needs to see it.

This unique software is still relevant in my opinion and for what I use it for, it works great.

Thanks for the 'heads-up'. I sincerely hope you are successful. I dread the day my pI stops working.

I am assuming that Boris FX has either not responded to your request or has decided to ignore its purchased user base. What a disgrace, what a shame, what a loss.

Hi Bob,

Actually, for whatever reason they think (thought) that Alan Lorence meant 2.0 or SE version. Not is Not the version Alan and I discussed in my email. So I corrected them and indicated 3.0 (3.4.1 or now 3.09).

After that, I have not received anything. I was bugging them to get all of the Free Emitters that used be on Wondertouch's website. Talk about how fast did they get rid of that URL? ( It is already for Sale). Anyway, I had them correct some installers for pi3 (OFX) but they still have not posted the Emitters that everyone who has this program should be able to download again.

The strange thing is, if you google search for borisfx particleillusion, you will find this website: https://borisfx.com/products/particle-illusion/ BUT they have listed this program as Legacy under their downloads page.

So for now, BorisFX has not gotten back to me regarding releasing a Patch so all of us valid users can self-register for when the day comes that BorisFX decides not to allow any registration from their servers.

In reality, they should release a self-validator or self-installer (whatever you want to call it) for all versions of particleillusion that was released.

I hope that BorisFX does the right thing. GenArts in my opinion dropped the ball with particleillusion and did not promote it enough. Heck, after the last Emitter Alan release (he notified users on Creative Cow forum Mar 2, 2015 ) and I told GenArts to add that lastest update to the Emitters page of Wondertouch (when it was still around 6-4-2015) and they indicated they could not devote man hours to edit a website. ?? Really. So a web editor could not take 5 min to add a link and url for Alan's last Emitter: http://www.wondertouch.com/downloads/new_libs/emitters_Q3_Q4_2014_il3.zip

All around sad in my opinion.

Sounds promising. Where can we see an actual demo? What are the OS/hardware requirements? What is the cost?
Do previous owners get any breaks on the cost? When will it be available?

Thanks for the post.
Bob

All good questions Bob, but there are no answers yet -- except to say that there will be a tech demo in the Boris FX booth at NAB in April.

I hope to keep everybody here updated as things progress and we have more details.

Alan.

I was Boris's very first retailer back in 1995 when it was on diskettes and hand-copied manuals. I have known him for a little while, now. :)

Boris has always been more than generous and more than fair. Particle Illusion is in good hands and I couldn't be happier about its future.

Whatever Boris decides, while I doubt it will make every last person happy, I am sure that the vast preponderance of users will be happy with where the product goes and how it gets there.

Best regards,
