View Full Version : particle emmiters

I've got many questions in this area, and lots of other areas, so bear with me,

1. is it posibble to make particles into objects, like if you wanted a hole bunch of leafs to blow around?

2.can you make particles come out of the emmiter straight and evenly spaced so its in a line, and not so random, and if so how?

3. can you have the particles be emmited, and as time goes on they gradually get biger so it's like a "funnel"for say

-Thank you

1. Yes. it's called FX linker. I haven't used it yet for anything but I've read about it several times. I think one of the places was inside Lightwave7 book by Dan Ablan and he does exactly that, link it to a bunch of leaf objects.

2. Particles normall shoot out straight unless you add explosion or vibration to them. Try resizing your emitter into a thin long line.

3. Yes. Use an evevlope either next to particle size in the fx browser or if you're applying hypervoxels to the particles, use particle size in the hypervoxel surface panel.
