Not too long ago, I picked up a bundle from Humble Bundle and got an interesting program called Flame Painter 4. I played around with it for a while and figured I'd be able to make some sweet custom graphics for my game like parallax backgrounds or title/game over screens, things like that. Now that I've played around with Effekseer, I think I'll be able to use them together! Flame Painter uses dynamic brushes to create really cool effects like flames, sparks, tracers. I'm even more excited to work with Effekseer now!

@Tea's Jams Just a quick question; am I allowed to use the materials that come in the sample folder (along with the Effekseer download) to create my animation? Or do I have to make my own material?

You can use them because they are CC0. Just don't copy an effect and use as is, it should be your own effect edited from the original components.

Submitted my entry!
Honestly pretty intimidated by the current entries, I hope I do well. :kaoswt2:
(also hoping the file actually works as intended, otherwise that would suck)

I'm having issues getting itch.io to accept my project as submit-able to the contest. I'm not familiar with the platform, just joined it today so I'm not sure how to trouble shoot it. and the deadline is close but I really want to submit this entry :(

Nevermind, Got it :)

We're happy to announce that in celebration of the upcoming RPG Maker MZ, and it's new Particle Animation system, we have partnered with @Driftwood Gaming & @Tea's Jams to make the Ultimate Effekseer Animation Contest!

Make an animation in the free open source Particle Animations editor Effekseer! Submit it to the contest! Have a chance to win a copy of RPG Maker MZ... or perhaps some yet unreleased RPG Maker MZ resource packs!

Click through to the itch.io contest page for full rules and how to enter!

Need some help getting started with Effekseer? Don't worry, it is pretty intuitive, and on top of that, Tea has been making some video tutorials to get you started, with more to come soon!
Offtopic, who's the author name of the blonde boy? Looks like my brother. Thank you!

"Submission is closed and voting is now in progress"

Is this an open voting? If so I can't find where to vote. (Though I hope this means judge voting, otherwise instead of it being a contest of best skill, it ends up becoming a popularity contest of who manages to nag the most friends for votes :guffaw: )

I made alternative colors (10 total) for one of my entries that I hope could be useful and was wondering, can I offer them to be included in the free dlc pack even though they won't be a part of the contest itself?

Power has been restored FINALLY to our home in Lake Charles. Hurricane Laura tried to wreck our lives and disrupt my work on the commercial project i have going with Cloud 9 but the key word is TRIED!!! Slowly moving from the shelter to home over the next week or so. I WILL NOT QUIT!
I am happy because the RPG Maker MZ character comes with extra bust and full body art, but I am disappointed because the quality of the character's PIxel art has decreased.
Only My Opinion that Pixel art MV is better.
I think my SV will be weird, but I would love to change it up.

"Signature characters" - the mascots of your game. Cute, quirky, lovable, recognizable.
i.e.
Kirby, Disgaea prinnies, creepers, Sonic, Mario, DQ slimes, pikachu (all starters), chocobos.

You see what I'm saying.
Getchu one.
Made a video showcasing a plugin that changes the animation rate for animated tiles in our games.

(Plugin by Caethyril )
