    particle age

    Learning LW all over again. Its been a while. Going from 2015 to 2018 with years of down time in-between. I cant fine the particle age parameter any more. I need particles to fade out over life not just pop and disappear. Sooooo much to relearn. Thanks.

    You would take the age data item, wire it as input to a gradient or curve node, who's output you'd use to drive the density item of the output node.

    See... https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...4072533A16B807 if you're not so familar with working with nodes.
