View Full Version : Particle Trails

09-27-2006, 12:09 PM
Hello, I have found some threads that have helpful in parts of the particle spark effect that I am looking for, but the one thing I am having a problem with is having the sparks have a trail look that fades and dies off.

Anyone know how to get the particles have the trail effect?

Thank you in advance!

Set a higher value in antialiasing and enable motion blur.

If you're using HV, play with the stretch amount, with stretch direction set to velocity.

Make a new emitter and parent it to your first emitter. Then set the second emitter to "parent emitter". After that you can make different groups to define it's motion with differnt forces.
