Do you ever get mesmerized by the beautiful, moving particle effects background on a website? What if you wanted to create the same for your Beaver Builder websites?

Taking the web by storm, the particle effects background style not only highlights your websites’ appearance but also makes a great impression on your visitors.

With the Background Effects feature of PowerPack, you can add excellent animated backgrounds on the website. These animations consist of an extensive list of styling options which give you complete flexibility to customize the color, size & quantity of the moving particles.

Particle Background Effects in PowerPack is based on the popular Particle.JS library. It’s a light-weight JavaScript-powered animation library for creating elegant particle effects on any website.

What is a Particle Effects Background?

The Particle background effects consist of moving elements. These elements can be configured as per different parameters like shape, size, radius, color, etc. The Particle.JS animation library allows us to customize the particle behavior as well.

The Particle background effect can be used creatively for creating various kinds of styles like snowfall, galaxy, stars, polygons, etc. You can also disable the animation or moving effect and create a static particle effect.

Where can we use these amazing background effects?

Particle background effects can be added to various sections to create stunning visual effects on the website. You can use particle effects for special festive offers or just for fun! How about adding a snow effect during the winters on your website? Or you can add some stars for Christmas?

Other than the fun part, the particle effects background can be used for contextual design experience as well. E.g., you can add polygon or circular background effects for a music website. You can add a connected dots background for a technology or research website.
