XP2 really is something special. I think it will easily replace TP as the go-to particle particle system for most c4d animators.

Here's a test with millions of particles (no geometry except sphere primitive for sun).
Renders fast!

Heres another one--just a simple "pour" test to see how many particles I could throw at it.
I got 2 million+ out of this one, but I can say that since then I have gotten 5 million particles to render without a problem.

Sorry about the compression

Woah,

really impressing new version of XP! Insane speed improvements and amazing new features.
Great work ! Maybe an early question: does the "skinner" modifier will be included in the "lite"-
version ?

Hehe, nice try! But it would be kind of like giving away the crown jewels if it was in the free Lite version. Developing the skinner has been a huge amount of work, but it's well worth it.

Looks fantastic, guys. Is there any kind of buy-v1-now-and-get-the-v2 update deal?

Hi Adam,

We decided not to do that kind of deal because it doesn't seem fair on people who bought v1 more than a year ago. What we will be doing is, if you buy v1 before v2 is released, there is a small discount for every owner of v1 if they upgrade to v2.

Awesome. This will surly replace TP for many advanced particle User as well because of the Threaded-Speed. Collisions are hardly usable with TP...now with XP it seems to be possible to work with. Great.

Looks like a great plugin, awesome work on v2! The multithreaded particles alone would be worth the update but you have tons of other great stuff added to it.
