The DTScripts Particle Database is a framework that (hopefully) makes the process of creating particle effects a little easier.
My script (DTS_ParticlePanel, a Blender Addon) starts off in the Particles panel and presents you with options to create four types of elements, along with a panel for database control. You’ll need to create new elements if you’re dealing with a fresh file. The “material” designation will be changing in a future release.
Full instructions are included in the zip file. I also have a demo video of the script in action. If you have any crits or comments after trying this out, please feel free to let me know by sending me an e-mail.
