i have a dual processor computer (AMD Athlon MP 200+ 1.67GHz) with 1.00GB RAM.

lightwave is bogging down when i try to use over 5,000 particles from an emitter.

does that sound right?

i tried to find if there's a limit or something but i can't find that info anywhere.

what do you do if you need more particles?

your system spec' sounds okay, it will slow down because LW (or PFX) is drawing a lot of moving elements on screen.

regarding particle limits, if you try to enter a value larger than 100000 on any one emitter it won't let you, so if you need more just add more emitters.
