In the Emitter settings there is an intriguing option: Size Effect.

I was looking to see why my scaled up emitter was generating too many particles. with "Size>Density Fix[Mass change]" selected (what foreign language are these things coded in anyway?), Scaling the emitter outside of the Dynamics tab, ie 'normally', causes it to generate far more particles than usual.

Of the seven options available, none are documented in the PDFs. (Search on "density fix".)

So, anybody ever play around with these and find some entertaining applications?

Off hand, i can imagine wanting a continuous explosion to maintain its density as it expands, so there's one application right there. But mass increase? Speed increase? Do tell! :hey:
