In version 6.0, our new major feature, Character Animation Effects Director, is an exciting new addition which is based on the feedback of our loyal community of Fork Particle users.

Character Animation Effects Director feature allows you to play your character model animations in Fork Particle Studio. In the Particle Studio’s classic Director mode, the artist can attach particle effects with the FBX Model. Enhanced user friendliness of Fork Particle Studio includes user control of such details as the length of the effects segments, control over FBX animation start/stop, and attaching effects to desired skeletal animation bone nodes such as head, wrists, and fingers. Artists associate characters’ animations with the effects they create. For example, a character sword swipe can have a sword trail or a heavy punch animation can have a fire ball.
Fork Particle specializes in advanced real-time particle effects tools and technology. The technology enables many types of visual effects including fire, explosion, smoke, rain, fountain, fog and fireworks effects. The particle effects system is optimized for high performance and includes a powerful, feature-rich particle editor.
