Particle System for Papervision3D

February 22, 2008

A few weeks ago I made some modifications to the Zeus Lab particle system for Actionscript made by Josh Tynjala . The Josh’s particle system is neat, simple and if you combine the particle system with the use of filter you can obtain beautiful visual effects. I wanted to continue using it while experimenting with Papervision, the only problem is that it is 2D, so I made the port of the particle system to make it usable in a 3D environment, the result was some kind of distribution of the particle system because I didn’t touch the 2D code I only extended to be usable with the display architecture and classes in PV3D.

In the following example I will explain how to use it combined with the Effects branch to obtain something like this:
