Maxon Releases Trapcode Suite 17.1 for Motion Graphics, VFX

FRIEDRICHSDORF, Germany, Nov 10, 2021 – In September, Maxon’s extensive Fall release included updates to nearly every product in the Maxon One subscription, including Trapcode Suite 17 that featured the long-requested ability to work with Particular and Form in the same 3D space. Less than two months later, Maxon is pleased to announce the immediate availability of an update for Trapcode (17.1) that contains workflow and performance enhancements, as well as several minor bug fixes for Particular.




Performance Enhancements Include:

  1. The ‘Create Null’ button now becomes ‘Unlink Null’ when a null has been created to allow for easier decoupling (if desired).
  2. Undoing ‘Create Null’ is now a one step process.
  3. Improved performance for Fluid Dynamics during longer renders.
  4. Improved Cinema 4D spline shape support, including the ability to emit from Edges in addition to Vertices.
  5. Improved system multi-select behavior in the Designer to eliminate cases of unintentionally selecting multiple systems.
  6. Custom system names are now reflected in the ‘Emit from Parent System’ menu for child systems in the Designer.

A complete changelist can be found in our Trapcode 17.1 Release FAQ.


This update is available immediately from Maxon App.
