"If an exchange between two parties is voluntary, it will not take place
unless both believe they will benefit from it. Most economic fallacies
derive from the neglect of this simple insight, from the tendency to assume
that there is a fixed pie, that one party can gain only at the expense of
another."
- Milton Friedman

This is a commandline tool that takes a source image of a particle as input and generates an optimized polygon that fully encloses the particle in as tight area as possible given the provided number of vertices allowed. This can save a considerable amount of fillrate on particle systems. You can specify the alpha threshold value to use when deciding what pixels belong to the particle and not. The tool also supports using an altas of particles provided the atlas tiles are all the same size.
