View Full Version : Object in motion?

I guess this is more of an expression question than Lscript, but I thought someone here could probably help.

I want to have an object emit particles if it is in motion, and stop if it ain't.

How can I tell the particle birthrate to see if the object is in motion?

I don't know much about expressions, so any help with syntax would be greatly appreciated.

In the FX emitter options for the partigon emitter or the HV emitter, select "speed" in the "generate by" popup, and then play with the birth rate until you get what you want.

If that doesn't work for you, let me know, and I'll see if I can come up with a suitable equation for you (but you probably don't want to go there if you don't have to).

Best!
