I am trying to make a object spark but not during the entire animation only for about 30 frames out of the 200. How do i set this? :confused: Also what is a good setting to create sparks?

Probably particleFX
And then add some gravity near it so that when the sparks move out and up the gravity, then activate hypervoxels and change the settings to your liking

Nope, not even close. I already know about the particle emitter and hypervoxals, its a timing issue. Anyway I got it figured out and is looking good:D

you can definitely put an envelope on something, then in graph editor you can controll the timing

I parented the emitter to a null to 'pull' it around and then set the emitter to do its thing on the time line. Worked great.:D
