Does this mean you can make EPIC looking tornados with particle systems now? (Like in blender with smoke simulations) Or are we not at that stage yet?
None the less very nice cant wait for it even though i havent learned how to use particles myself.

Any plans for compatibility with ImageLabels and Decals/Texture instances as well?
Will there be any huge performance issues by using this feature excessively if it’s rolled out?
Is this a custom particle maker in Studio? Because if so I’m very happy because I was waiting for something like that.

I also hope that they do add this for decals.
that’s going to change roblox games for the better, for sure

Looks awesome! Looking forward to it.

I’m happy to report that I just merged the Flipbook code into the mainline. It still needs to be tested, and then flag-flipped. But we’re one big step closer to getting this in everybody’s hands in time for Christmas.

Does this means we are going to get a better particle system?

All of these updates are resulting in a better particle system…gradually…
Do my eyes deceive me? A ROBLOX staff member posting in
#?! It’s almost unheard of! development-discussion
Animated particles will help a LOT of people, and I for one am excited for this update!
And the funny thing is that if a normal user posted the same topic, it would’ve been taken down for being off-topic.
You are probably right on that one

Well, I’m terribly sorry everybody.
My Flipbook changes inadvertedly were the cause of this rather embarrasing and serious bug:
Particles, beams, and trails all disappearing, not disappearing when supposed to, and causing performance issues - #40 by JaapSuter
Fixing this first is more important than releasing Flipbooks, but it has the unfortunate consequence that I won’t be able to enable Flipbooks until the new year.
I’m terribly sorry everybody. I know people are as excited about this feature as I am, but stability of the existing product is more important (especially around the holidays), and that means Flipbooks has to wait until after Christmas before you’ll be abe to use it.
My fault. I’ll keep everybody posted.
All good. I love what you’re doing. I need this. We all need this. You’re literally carrying Christmas on your back. If you need a further pep talk, memes for motivation or a voucher for McNuggets, I got you.
Best wishes for the holidays.
God im so excited for this! i’ve set aside all the paarticles that are gonnaa need this for when the update rolls out xD
This is all I need after years

Hey! Is there any rough date in mind as to when flipbooks will go live, or into public beta?

Is the flipbook finally this??
As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to make cool looking VFXs like these:
You wonder why? It’s because Roblox does not have any technology that supports 2D and 3D animation effects that uses sprite sheets. While you’re able to process these VFXs by hacking your way through, it isn’t the optimal way or the best outcome it would be especially if you’re thinking what I’m thinking.
I have been able to recreate the slash VFXs above but it took me 30 uploads of a dec…
Dude, I’ve had this in my head for like 2 years now.

Excited for this, any news on when it might be enabled?
