Over 2 years ago, Desuade Partigen was released. This marked the beginning of something special, something even magical. It was the spark of what is about to become the wildfire of Partigen 2.
The new Flash particle effects platform introduced with Partigen 2 is a rebirth of the original idea: a realtime particle effects plugin for Flash that is easy to use, yet incredibly powerful and high quality. This release is the essence of that idea.
A few things have changed at Desuade: the focus on community and the shocking embrace of open source – while incomparable focus on value, innovation, and passion are still the difference that sets Desuade apart …and Partigen 2 is the flagship example of this.
It would be trivial to list what’s new in this version: as it’s a brand new product, with little in common of the original. It’s really remarkable what Flash is now capable of, and Partigen 2 shows this off in full glory.

Thank you for your support this journey, I truly appreciate it – and let me know what you think!
The original Partigen was the first of it’s kind – a realtime particle effects component for Flash that could be used with a few clicks of the mouse. The downside, was the API was closed and nothing was open source… and it was in AS2.
After 11 months of development, and 3 months since the last beta release, the open source AS3 particle effects library Partigen 2 is now out of beta and has been officially released! You can grab it now:
Along with the particle system, an entire motion package featuring tweening, physics, sequencing, and the exclusive motioncontroller was built to power all those particles. Cleverly named the “Desuade Motion Package”, it has been released as well as version 1.0.
Both packages are being developed together, and those looking for just a powerful animation package for AS3 can use it independently.
I will be finishing up getting the Partigen 2 plugin ready for a release over the next few days, so be sure to keep an eye out for that. If you are excited about this, you should tell somebody else who might be interested.. as I’m sure they’d love you for it!
I’m starting to get really excited.. can you feel excited about this yet?
