How to Use X-Particles

This is the first stage of my new e-book, 'How to Use X-Particles' and is now available for download.Because it is an e-book I can release it a chapter at a time as they are complete, and add more chapters - and more material to existing ones - as time passes. So you will find that this first stage deals with some basic information, particle groups, and the emitter.

Please note that the book is NOT a product of INSYDIUM and they will not be able to answer questions or respond to comments about it.

I wrote the very first version of the X-Particles plugin and for some years I was one of its principal developers. The book isn't a rehash of the manual, nor is it a substitute for the excellent training videos produced by INSYDIUM.

Instead, it is intended to be a book for new and intermediate users of XP who want to get to know the plugin a little better and in particular some of the aspects not dealt with elsewhere, such as the Question/Action feature.

This is a free download for anyone who wants to add to their knowledge of XP or is thinking of buying the plugin. The book has its own website, so for more details and to download a copy, please visit
