Service Pack 1 for ThinkingParticles 3.0

What’s New in TP3 SP1?

3ds Max 2009 compatibility

In addition to 3ds max 2009 support, the following improvements have been made in Service Pack 1:
  • Surface position helper returns UV coordinates for edges and vertices now. Previously when edges or vertices mode was chosen, no UV coordinates were created
  • Overall stability for x64 systems has been increased as well as several crash situations have been isolated and fixed
  • Speed increases have been made in various operators and calculations
  • UV generation for fragments has been added for better fragment mapping
  • About ThinkingParticles

    ThinkingParticles™ 3.0 is the ultimate rule based particle system for 3ds max, offering unparalleled power to the user. ThinkingParticles™ 3.0 is a completely new class of rule-based particle systems for 3ds Max. When this type of particle system is compared to an event-based particle system, (which works on triggers and time dependent events) you’ll find many unique advantages within TP3’s rule-based logic, which is free from normal time-based constraints and instead applies simple behaviors. These behaviors govern all aspects of a particle’s motion, life, death, and collisions in a true non-linear fashion. We hope you find that by using ThinkingParticles 3, you can create all the incredible effects you were hoping for, but have been limited previously by existing technologies.
