I want to create a sword trail smear in Blender with Particles. I cannot figure it out, and googling doesn't seem to give me too much direction. Perhaps I'm googling incorrectly.

The issues I'm having are mainly:

  • I dont know how to set a minimum speed the sword must swing at to emit particles.
