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 tip:

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.
