Learning LW all over again. Its been a while. Going from 2015 to 2018 with years of down time in-between. I cant fine the particle age parameter any more. I need particles to fade out over life not just pop and disappear. Sooooo much to relearn. Thanks.

I saw that but its not like it used to be and I cant figure out how to do it the new way.

You would take the age data item, wire it as input to a gradient or curve node, who's output you'd use to drive the density item of the output node.
