Hi, i was watching a video on youtube, and in the video the person shows his flame thrower made in Lightwave3d. Usually when you use Volume HVs in layout and turn on show particles they are a big colored wire frame spheres but on his they were little colored dots. Does any one know how to do this?

By the way here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HHxy78Zx20&feature=related

You set the particle size in the emitter panel. In the HV panel turn on show particles.
Set the size of the particle in opengl in the emitter panel. If you use Volume HVs youll see tiney spheres which will c hange color depending upon the shading parameters you set in the HV panel. You can also use very tiny sprites which will also show up in opengl and change color etc.
