    So the only way for me to add visual effects to my game is through making the effect in Buildbox using particle effect or trail or with a third-party software, by creating and then importing it as a PNG sequence. The effects I want to learn how to create are similar to these: one, two, three and four. I know that you can (somehow) make them in After Effects but it is too expensive for me. So I want a similar software but a little cheaper. The problem is that I don't even know where to find it. If I google for "After Effects alternatives" I will only get software that is focused to create film effects. If I google "best vfx software for games" I will get Blender and 3d Max which is not appropriate (probably) for cartoon-ish style vfxs that I want. So:

    • How can I find software for making visual effects like splashes, explosions, flashes for games?
    • Are Blender / 3d Max really appropriate here?
    • How these effects are called properly? Visual effects or particle effects or animation?
    I know that it's not really about Buildbox, but I really need some help in this because I am just starting to learn all that vfx stuff.

    Unfortunately, It is.

    You can use 2D VFX sprite sheets. Some of them free on internet, o you can buy if you want. Unity asset store has lot of them :)
    Then, You can convert the sprite sheet in to individual PNG and use it on BB.
