1. Bug Fixes - Rendering Related
  • The Ribbon Emitter normal, metallic, and roughness texture channels don't show up.  In the following illustration, when the same material is applied on the Ribbon Emitter and the Mesh Emitter, the Ribbon Emitter fails to render the proper PBR and normal effect.

  • The Mesh Emitter has really strong AO effect when rendering videos and images.  This is due to improper ordering of the AO render buffer.

  • When an undocked panel is picked, the shadows from PopcornFX particles become weaker and weaker - and can even vanish. 


  • Strange transparent spots appear on the Texture Emitter when it intercepts with a Mesh Emitter.

  • PopcornFX distortion effect disappears when Exposure Bloom is set to maximum strength.

  • The Render Video/Image Layer disappears on certain operations or for specific PopcornFX content.
  • Visual defects appear when the camera is zoomed out or dollied out -the letters on the particle effect become disconnected, only partially showing.

  • No response when adjusting the Mesh Emitter Blend Mode to Solid Color Lit or when adjusting particle settings such as Lifetime and Start / Middle / End Opacity.

2. Upcoming Enhancements - Improved Operation and User Interfaces
  • Universal Adjust Color panel now available for PopcornFX Texture Channels.

  • The PBR metallic and roughness texture maps will be automatically generated when loading (*.pkfx) files for Lit Particle Material types. This is a convenient way to adjust the PBR look and feel of the effect in conjunction with the Adjust Color feature.

    • The rotation result is not correct when Forward To Velocity is disabled.
    • The emitted mesh will erroneously rotate when Spin Speed along Velocity is set to 0.
    • The attributes Scale Y & Scale Z are mistakenly swapped.
    • The behavior of Initial Rotate (X/Y/Z) and Free Rotation Speed (X/Y/Z) will improve by mimicking those of common 3D tools.  Forum Report

    • Radius Increment Fade Out" behaves incorrectly.
    • No effect from the green channel of the Texture for Emission which is used to determine the size of Ribbon
