No it is not 3d, although I hope they change that in later versions. If it is remade as plugin for AE i don't see why it wouldn't allow to instance other layers. The advantage of PI lies in the fact that it is a full fledged particle generator...meaning you have an option of creating deflectors, blockers, forces and superemittors. I don't have as much experience with Particular so i'm under assumption it lacks those options. Those "cheesy" effects that come a plenty with it are highly customizable. You can go a tweak them to your liking and produce your unique looking effects. Right now its downfall lies in being standalone app, which makes your workflow a lot slower because you first have to render out and then put out to AE. On plus side it renders incredibly fast...Another thing it is less expensive than Particular 200 bucks less.
