i created a particle system and the movement works great, also along the time (470 frames at 60fps) works great too BUT the only little thing that is still wrong is the time of the particles dissapearing, is still too fast and it looks bad.. Is there any way to change this? (when the particles appear, and dissapear?) I'm starting to work with particles, so i'm really new on this but also i'm really interested.

Please help! Thanks in regards.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for replying, with that i mean that the particles just dissapear too fast and looks like the particles (a lot of them) are dissapearing in groups and not one by one, i was using two particle systems in order to make the particles able to form a text, it's working, but yet the particles appears and dissapear just so fast that it doesnt really feel the particles are forming the text (while they seem to form the sillouethe) $\endgroup$ – beavoru Dec 30 '14 at 17:16
  • $\begingroup$ Did you set the lifetime? $\endgroup$ – Scalia Dec 30 '14 at 17:21
  • $\begingroup$ The lifetime is 115, same as the 'end' of the particle. $\endgroup$ – beavoru Dec 30 '14 at 17:22

Increase the Random property under lifetime. This controls the pseudo-random lifetimes per particle.

  • $\begingroup$ It worked! now i have a last problem...and it's that i need to render this as a 60fps sequence, but the problem is that even if i seem this animation and timing working, the preview is showing 30fps, not 60fps...so i'm thinking to re-scale the numbers of the particles (start, end and lifetime) or is there any other better option? Thanks again :) $\endgroup$ – beavoru Dec 30 '14 at 17:38
  • $\begingroup$ You should just be able to double everything. $\endgroup$ – Scalia Dec 30 '14 at 17:49
  • $\begingroup$ Did it work???? $\endgroup$ – Scalia Dec 30 '14 at 20:19
  • $\begingroup$ Somehow, but still it's not perfect, the particles still appear too fast, so i'm trying another particle system that can replace the actual one, since the 'curve' does not really 'fill' the letter :/ $\endgroup$ – beavoru Dec 30 '14 at 20:22
