v0.0.87 Update
New version just released
Release date: February 2015
A Visual Particle Effect Designer made for GameMaker Studio.

Create advanced particle effects within minutes, using multiple Particle Systems, Emitters and Particle Types.

Crosslink the systems simply by dragging and dropping them onto each other. Tweak and twist every available Particle option with ease.

When you're happy with the effect, use the One-Click 'Export as GML' and import into GameMaker Studio. Use it in conjunction with the TMC Particle Lab Effects asset found in the Yoyo Games Marketplace to recreate your effect exactly as you designed it.

- add multiple Particle Systems, Emitters and Particle Types
- link the systems by drag'n'drop
- easy effect editing
- touch friendly interface with layered menu system
- delete, copy and renaming of all objects
- more than 20 awesome effect templates
- Death/Step particle loop detection
- Hide/Show GUI for fullscreen preview
- Save/Load projects
- Export as GML for GameMaker Studio
- Integrated online sharing of project files and GML exports (Android, iOS and Win 8 App)
- 30 Custom particle Sprites

Quick Instructions.
The default project contains 1 Particle System, 1 Emitter and 1 Particle. Tap and hold to move them around. Single tap to open the object menu. Use the menus for detailed options. Use the Main Menu to add more objects.

Drop them on each other to link them. Dropping a Particle on another Particle sets the Death Particle.

- A Particle System can be linked to multiple emitters, but not particles
- An Emitter can be linked to only 1 Particle System and only 1 Particle
- A Particle can be linked to multiple emitters

Menu and Hide/Show GUI buttons are drag-able - tap and hold to move them around.

TMC Particle Lab is available now for Android and Windows Desktop, coming soon to iOS and Windows 8.

I think this would be a cool addition to Game Maker Studio. Will it work on the free version of Game Maker Studio? I hope so, because I already have ideas. Maybe the particle effect could be used in a transformation sequence in an RPG, or maybe a village could be on fire, or maybe there could be fireworks when the character completes a platforming level. Um, the short version of that comment is I hope your software gets green lit :)

@Ferengi - true, the first versions was in 4:3 - i recently released an update having dynamic workspaces, so it adjusts to your screen resolution ;) I will update the screenshots soon.

Screenshots are not in 16:9 ratio so they have borders
