Liven Up Your Sections with Animated Particle Effects

If you’re new to web design or unfamiliar with technical jargon, you probably have no idea what particle backgrounds are, so let’s tackle that first.

Imagine tiny, moving particles that create a stunning animated background. Pretty cool, right?

That’s a particle background, and they’re a fantastic way to add some pizzazz to your website and create a dynamic, eye-catching design.

To get started, you’ll need a premium SeedProd plan.

From there, simply click any section in the SeedProd page builder, click the Advanced tab, and enable the Particle Background toggle.

By default, you’ll see the Polygon particle style. However, you can click the dropdown menu to choose from 6 different styles or upload your own custom effect.

You can also change the flow direction of particles, assign a custom color, and enable Advanced customization options.

In the Advanced options, you can increase or decrease the number of particles and their size and adjust the particle movement speed.

There’s also a nifty hover effect that makes the particles scatter when you move over them with your cursor.

Note: you can only preview the hover effect once you save and preview your page.
