Colonel Justice Thanks again for your suggestions! I've been looking for a very simple to use 2D particle software. I looked at TimelineFX, but that software seems a bit outdated, and there are very few tutorials and those are from at least 6 years ago!
The other one you posted, Particle FX Designer looks easier to use, but it seems to generate pixel graphics only? I'm not really looking to spend days learning new FX software so something simple would be nice, I was wondering if you had any more suggestions other than these?
Specifically to create 'cartoonish'/vector like effects. I really like the explosion effects in TimelineFX, just wish I could cartoonize them, with less detail.
