  • Status update on the new PI

    Posted by Alan Lorence on August 13, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    The last look at PI you’ve seen was an NAB clip that Elvis posted here. We’ve made big strides since then, but there’s quite a bit left to do. Here’s some info on what’s new and where we are:

    – 64-bit now
    – Modern UI
    – Integrated emitter search (it sort of feels like libraries don’t exist anymore — so nice!)
    – Reorganized and cleaned up emitter libraries
    – Performance should be better, but we don’t have specifics yet.
    – Render quality should be improved, especially with motion blur enabled
    – Exists as a plug-in for Adobe, Apple, Avid, and OFX hosts (including Resolve, Vegas, and Nuke)
    – Will be included with Continuum 12
    – Release by mid-October (possibly earlier)
    – Standalone version (that does not require a host app) release date uncertain, but probably a couple of months after that. (Depends on several factors)

    Beta test of the plug-in version should be starting in the next 3-4 weeks, so if you’d like to help us test the new PI, please email me directly!

    More details, screengrabs, videos, etc. coming soon, but please let me know if you have any specific questions. I know I haven’t been responsive here lately but that’s because I wasn’t getting post notifications. Hopefully that’s fixed!

    We do not show email addresses here or every bot on the planet would be harvesting them nonstop.

    We like to protect people’s emails, so they are never openly shown.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    We will be starting the Particle Illusion beta test in the next couple of days, so if you’re interested in giving it a look, please let me know ASAP!

    Only the plugin version at this time, so you’ll need to be using Adobe, Avid, Vegas, Resolve.

    You’ll actually be testing the entire Continuum package so it’s much more than just PI.
