Particle Effects

  • Steffen Itterheim


To create special visual effects, game programmers often make use of particle systems. Particle systems work by emitting vast numbers of tiny particles and rendering them efficiently, much more efficiently than if they were sprites. This allows you to simulate effects like rain, fire, snow, explosions, vapor trails, and many more.
