Digimation announced the launch of Particle Tools for 3ds max, a package that combines three particle utilities that had been released separately before: Atomizer, Glider and Spray Master.
Atomizer allows a particle system to use any 3ds max object as a particle object. Glider gives you the ability to make particles flow over another object's surface or follow any 2D or 3D spline, and allows you to animate any object or particle system along the surface of another object. Spray Master allows users to spray both 2D and 3D geometry as particles on or around other objects with a freehand brush or spline-based control.
Particle Tools is compatible with versions of 3ds max 4.x and above for the list price of $195.00. Upgrades to Particle Tools are available for $125 to users who currently own one these plug-ins individually, and for $50 to users who own two or more.
