As I'm not an experienced user I need some help to make a fountain. I digged into hypervoxels and particles, succeeded in gettting an emitter which emits particles the right way, but I don't now how to get the particles fall back to earth....
Anybody an idea?

Add gravity, you can set this from particle properties..

Thank for your reaction.
Did so already. But then the particles go direct downwards. And they have to fall down after they have reached a certain height.
Can you be more specific? How to set the params?

Check out "The Worms of Art" water collection -- http://www.the-worms-of-art.com/Pshelf/TheWaterCollection_370.html

It's $35.00 and comes with a number of fountains that can be added to your LightWave scene. Or, examine the settings used for each fountain within the collection.

Just play with your settings have some fun you will figure it out.

Start with a low birth rate so you only have a few particals then work with your settings.:)
