Effekseer Project develops "Effekseer," which is visual software for creating open source games; on September 13,
I released "Effekseer 1.4," which is the latest major version release.
Effekseer is a tool to create various visual effects used in games and others.
With Effekseer, you can easily create various visual effects such as explosion, light emission, and particle simply by specifying different parameters.
Effekseer's effect creation tool works on Windows and macOS.
The created visual effects can be viewed on Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android and other environments with DirectX, OpenGL and so on.
In addition, there are plugins / libraries for game engines such as Unity and UnrealEngine4 to view visual effects.
Effekseer 1.4 is an updated version of Effekseer 1.3 released in November 2017.
This update contains the following changes:
- The renewal of UI.
- Support the tool for macOS.
- Addition of a function to read FBX with animation.
- Addition of parameters to protect collied effects and objects.
- Addition of parameters for easier control of the effects.
In addtion I improve plugins/libraries for Unity, UnrealEngine4 and Cocos2d-x.
Besides that, more than 40 new sample effects have been added and many bugs have been fixed.
Effekseer 1.4 is available on the project website.
The license for the software is the MIT license.
