hey,

i am trying to make some fire, and some smoke, and i want the fire to kind of fade into the smoke. i've got two particle emitters set up with with hypervoxels activated, one for each (both are set to 'volume' type). i rendered a frame and they don't really blend at all. i know there is a blending mode option, but it is greyed out, and i can't access it. is there something i need to do so i can access the blending modes? or is there some other way to make the fire look like it fades into smoke naturally?

thanks in advance,
alex

Use 'Particle Age' under Gradient under Color

in pic the orange are new particles and the grey are older with some in between
