wasn’t there a function like that in lightwave ?

If not it was probably a different program, I'm really confused lately using to many different 3d programs.

I think so, saw someone using this to create a blue gas like fire on a newtek logo.

Uses your texture map to control the birth rate rather than 'alpha' though as far as I can gather.
