Hi,
as subject.. i'm doign a fountain and PFX is pretty ok, but partigons render plain flat color. they seem to obey only at point size in obj panel, nothing else.
Cant remember how to give surface properties and shadowing to these... . BTW negative value in Surf Editor/render outlines doesnt work.

thanks,

Paolo

That works only for lines. For partigons you have to enter a negative value for Particle Line/Thickness in Object properties > Edges tab. Then, they'll shade properly.

Make sure you are using raytraced cameras -in classic camera I haven't yet been able to get the old look back.
