Easy color modification in particleIllusion

How to mod any of those free library presets By Ko Maruyama
Now that the holiday season is coming up, you're going to need to put more sparkly graphics on you or video. While there are many different types of particle applications out there, none is as fast, and gives real time feedback the way particleIllusion does. Even with all of the free libraries, you may need to modify some properties like color.

Previously I've talked about how you can set up your own library and your custom particles, even creating ones that you'll come back to time and again. However you should know that there is a huge library which is updated every month. So there are plenty to choose from if you don't want to make your own particle emitter yourself.

However sometimes you'll grab a preset from the free Library and you want to make some adjustments. It's very easy to open up the settings within the library and modify them to make them your own. It's been a while since I played around with particleIllusion, but with the new update, I will be making more particle pieces in the weeks to come.
