I just pledged towards this, as 1) I like seeing new apps on OS X, 2) it's a great alternative to After Effects if you can't afford it or decide not to sign up to Creative Cloud, and 3) I've been watching this for a while and think it looks really cool. There's a LOT of functionality in there (it's like AE plus Particular plus VC Element 3D), so even if you have AE, it might be a useful addition to your armoury.*

Also, by pledging around $250, I get the Ultimate version of the app for $150 less than the current asking price. It's not entirely a no-brainer, but I thought it was close enough!

Help a good Mac cause!

* Bonus number 4) It's a UK-based VFX software developer, so it's good to show your support for home-gown apps.

Pledging that much, would you lose your money if they don't raise enough?

No, if they don't reach the target no money is taken. And anyway, they only debit your credit card once (and if) the total has been reached.

While I'm contributing because I do want the app for Mac, this topic really has little to do with Mac-specific LW support. Seems more like something for either "LW Community", or better "General Discussion", no?

I've pledged the 165 baseline for the Mac version. Hope this happens - the particle system alone looks worth the price!

I got fond ememories of its ancestor FX Lab. Yet, I think I'll stick to the FCP/MOTION combo for now.

Trapcode Particular for AE is 260 on its own - so yeah, it's a bargain at this price!
