Elvis Deane's Website resource page appears to be gone

I really hope Elvis Deane has not taken down his useful particleillusion website: http: pi.shockingtales.com It seems more and more resources are disappearing, like the original wondertouch.com websit

And it's back up, though considering it's over 12 years old and relied on Flash, there may be some dead links. The links to emitters and scenes seems to work, so there's that. -- Elvis Deane! hyperbol

RIP particleIllusion

I apologize for the clickbait headline, but it feels like I'm writing an obituary for a friend I just found out died. I almost can't even fathom who I'd be as a person now if it weren't for particleIl

Does anyone know if there's going to be an upgrade path for those of us who already have 13 I'd hate to find out we have to pay full price or more than $199 when 14 launches in September.

Not that I mind it for legacy projects, but it's about 6 years too late. I'm just about ready to dump my HVX200 and now they integrate it. Overall though the update looks very promising. -- Elvis Dean

I use the GH1 all the time for long shoots, and it never gets hot. I've done 2.5 hour shows, and it's fine. I assume the GH2 is the same, especially considering you won't be necessarily writing to a c

Your best bets for going out to Flash are to render an AVI using an uncompressed codec like Huffy or Lagarith, or to render out a sequence of PNG files, which you can bring into Flash as a clip.-- Elv
