When you use PARTICLE AGE as the Input Parameter in a gradient, are the values in frames or in seconds?

The answer is always best from the horses mouth.

This is as the manual describes it..

Gradient Input Parameters

Special Input Parameters will be available for texture gradients on HyperVoxel parameters. Particle Age is simply the age of (Particle FX) particles, in frames

I don't think that can be correct (IOW, the manual must be in error), because, given the pictured gradient, shouldn't the gradient be run thru in FIVE frames?

I think the manual is right for HV's. PixieDust appears to be by seconds.
