ThinkingParticles 3.0 DEMO Version

Cebas has release its new ThinkingParticles 3.0 Demo Version. Cebas tried to make your ThinkingParticles Demo experience as close to the full version as possible, but there are as you can expect some restrictions in a Demo Version. Cabas say’s about their product: “ThinkingParticlesTM 3.0 is the ultimate rule based particle system for 3ds max, offering unparalleled power to the user. ThinkingParticlesTM 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. ”

Demo only Restrictions:

  • Particles can’t be rendered
  • Meshes are not created except for view port display
  • Materials are not supported for rendering output
  • Particle caching is not available in the Demo Version
