powerful 3D particle system that can produce a wide range of
effects from natural
smoke and explosions to geometric or organic abstract motion
The extensive built-in
help provides text and animated images that visualize
how the parameters work and includes several step-by-step
tutorials on specific techniques.
features in v2 include shading particles from composition
lights, new Textured Polygon particle primitive, new Streaklet

Tight integration with Adobe After Effects provides bouncing
particles on 3D layers,
emitting particles from layers and lights and using a layer
as custom particle. Comp-camera aware and built-in motion
blur of course!
The physics engine includes air resistance, gravity and
turbulence, providing very realistic particle motion. The
keyframable Physics Time Factor gives you full control
over time so you can freeze time and move the camera around

Other features include Depth of Field and Motion
