  1. I have major issues with this plugin. Every time I click on a clip containing any of the plugins Resolume freezes briefly before continuing… That or your lighting bolt show loading…. I can’t have either of those things happen during a show…

    • Hello Alex,
      sorry you’re having trouble with the Image Particles plugin, I’ll be glad to help troubleshoot. If you’re experiencing crashing or freezing, you may have an out-of-date Flash plugin– some versions (version 11, released in early 2012 with Adobe Flash CS6) have a known bug that causes Resolume to crash. You’ll can roll back to a previous version of the Flash plug-in, or update to the most current version (recommended) by clicking here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/. If you’re running on a PC, be sure to install the flash plugin for Internet Explorer in particular.

      It is also a good idea to make sure you have the most current version of Resolume, there’s been a few bug fixes since version 4 came out, many of them having to do with Flash.

      If you want to change the default image (the lightning bolt) it’s an easy fix. By default the particle FX plugin loads a PNG called “default.png” in the “data” folder of the ImageParticles plugin. Simply change that image to another PNG (make sure it’s called “default.png”) and it will load that instead. If you’re loading a very large filesize image or you have the number of particles set really high, Resolume may take a second to initialize if there’s not enough system memory. Try starting with a small (less than 100k) image and work up from there.

      For more info, check out the Resolume forum post here: http://resolume.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9797.

      • Hello,
        I’d like to purchase this plugin specifically in order to play .GIF loops since their conversion into .MOV doesn’t satisfy me.
        I use Res, Arena 4.1.11, does this plugin works for such version? Any bug or crash known? Thank you for your response.

        • The Flash plug-ins for Resolume work on both Mac and PC, assuming you have the most current Flash plug-in for whichever platform you’re using– go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/. to download the most current version. Keep in mind that there can sometimes be issues with Resolume not being able to support a newer/older/current version of Flash– check the documentation for your version of Resolume for more information on playing Flash loops, and which version of the Flash plug-in that it supports.

          There is an old version of the Flash plug-in (version 11, released in early 2012 with Adobe Flash CS6) that has a known bug that causes Resolume to crash. However, if your system is up-to-date it will be fine.

  2. Hi i have buy and download Particle FX plugin, but i don’t understand how install it in Resolume in witch file ?? And wher do I load the GIFs

    Thanks to help me !!!!

    • There’s a demo video here that shows how to use it: https://vimeo.com/109980278

      And here’s a quick walkthru from the README file:

      ////////////// HOW TO USE THE GIF PARTICLES/GIF PLAYER PLUGINS /////////////////////

      1) Save an image to the “data” folder of your GifParticles or GifPlayer directory. THE IMAGE MUST BE IN THE “DATA” FOLDER OF THE CORRECT FOLDER OR IT WILL NOT LOAD!

      Preferred image specs: GIF, less than 200 px wide or 200px tall. You can have larger sizes if you like, but depending on the speed of your machine you may experience performance problems. 200 by 200px seems to be the resolution that works the best if there’s multiple gifs being used.

      2) Type in the name of the image file (for instance “image.gif”) into the IMAGE NAME field in your GifParticles or GifPlayer parameters window and hit “Enter”

      3) Resolume will look inside the “data” folder to find your image and load it into your particle cloud. In the case of the GifPlayer plugin, it will load a single image and display it in the middle of your clip.

      If for some reason your image does not appear, toggle the “SHOW INFO” parameter to see any error messages. Chances are that you may have mistyped the name, or the image is not in the “data” folder.

  3. I have bought and started using this with RA5
    is it possible to make the looping of the gifs be synchronized with the beat?

    • One trick I use when I want to framesynch is to run the gif in the plugin, and record in Rez for a couple seconds. This gives me a nice video file with transparency and full Resolume playback control so you can synch with the beat. It’s also a great technique to convert a lot of gifs quickly.

    • It’s been tested on all versions of Mac OS up to El Capitan– no reported bugs with resolume on Sierra, so you should be ok.

  4. Awesome plugins, what a fun addition to Resolume! Some gifs have persistence of frames until the loop (i.e. it continues to display the previous frames until the animation ends – then the shadow frames vanish and it starts over) is there a way I can avoid this with my encodes or is there a workaround to avoid the problem?

    • I’ve run into this issue– this actually has to do with the GIFS themselves. When saving out your GIF in Photoshop, be sure the frame disposal set as “dispose” (Right + Click on a frame in the Animation Panel)
