  • Tweak the parameters to get the perfect result. RainFX is intuitive, fast and enjoyable to use.
  • Just press “Let it rain” button and lean back.

Panel UI Controls


  • Angle: the angle of the rain (0 – 180)
  • Density: the density of the rain (1 – 100). Combine this with speed.
  • Speed: the speed of the rain (1 – 100). Adds motion blur to the rain to simulate speed.
  • Wind strength: the wind effect on the rain (0 – 5). The higher the number more wind is blowing and rain gets more scattered.
  • Levels of rain: add depth to the rain effect by adding more levels of rain (1 – 10). Translated to the language of a Photoshop user it means how much layers of rain will be created.
  • “Auto update” option: gives you an interactive approach to creating the rain effect. With each parameter change the rain automatically updates.
  • “Merge group” option: merges current rain effect parameters into one layer so you can for example add more variation by changing the parameters and then merging the group again.
  • Bonus feature: If “Merge group” option is not enabled every layer inside “rain_FX” group can be turned on and off so you can tweak the result even further and therefore achieve the look you want.
