The update focuses on performance boosts and optimizations.
Maxon has announced the release of Trapcode 2023.2, a new and improved version of the company's tool for creating particle simulations and 3D effects for motion graphics and VFX. Released as part of Maxon's Red Giant 2023.2 updates, a series of updates to the company's collection of tools for filmmaking and motion graphics Red Giant, the Trapcode update focuses primarily on performance boosts and optimizations.
The update features:
- Load time: Optimizations made to Particular loading times after the initial application.
- Linked Null: Linking the null created by Particular via expressions caused performance issues, so we've changed the method for linking to a layer selector.
- PTF and Turbulence Field: Optimized performance when animating the Physics Time Factor in combination with the Turbulence field.
- Dynamic Form Memory: Memory usage would sometimes continuously grow for a subset of long-lasting particles, which would ebb into available machine memory. This has been fixed and memory usage is now properly bounded.
