View Full Version : Path Wind and Particle problems

I've created a scene where my particles follow a path, all works well, as long as the action starts at frame 0. - how can I do the same thing but have it all start at frame 120, I've tried enveloping the particle emission but the particles then ignore the path.

Any ideas what I'am doing wrong?

Thanks.

Lee.

Wizlon,

I wouldn't have made it this way, but since you did, and so you don't have to start over again, this is what I think you should do:

The particles are following the wind, so if you start the particles at 120, the wind influence is gone and not affecting the particles anymore.

Move the keyframes of the wind, so it doesn't start moving until frame 120, AND set the particles so they don't emit until frame 120 also.

I have to say, that it was a clever way to get the particles to follow the path. I would have made a null, keyframed it to make the path, then parent the particle emitter to the null.

Good luck,
