    Just thinking outloud here....

    Is it possible to create an expression in the Graph Editor that calculates the object.particlefx.size based upon the ParticleAge?

    I'm just not sure how to get that ParticleAge...
    Maybe an Expression Master will come forward with the answer.

    Somewhere, over the rainbow....

    Try it with one object first, us FXLink in the motion panel to position it at a particles position, then use FXLink on the X Size channel of the object. It might not have the exact options you're looking for.

    If you get a result you like you can clone the objects using the FXLink Generic plugin (which also changes the particle index for the FXLink motion and channel plugins).

    Cheers,

    Thank you for your help.

    With the FxLinker you can make a lot of things but you can't scale your obj. based upon the particle.age.

    With the Lscript fron Faulknermano call: Fx_Link_Ultra everythings work great but when a clone my obj. more than 200, the scripts stop working.

    I write an e-mail to Faulknermano about this but i have no reply.

    PLease Help

    If i can make a loop whit my particles for keeping less than 100 particles i think is a great idea!
