View Full Version : Particles slow down, how do I keep them moving?

Hi Folks.

I'm messing around with particles in Lightwave, getting a feel for working with them and I'm enjoying it. But I have one issue I can't seem to resolve. When I give particles motions, they fly out of the emitter as they should, but they then slow then and tend to all pile up together before their life expires and they disappear. As a result I have a steam of particles flying out of the emitter, and then accumulating in a bunch. I want the particles to keep moving, not slow down, but I can't figure out what is causing this, and hence how to fix it. Can anyone help me out please?

its the resistance setting, if its 0 they will just keep moving at the same speed, its usually set to 1 default

That fixed it. Thanks very much!
