making unique particles
on Apr 23, 2007 at 4:10:43 pm

I'm having trouble making my particles unique from one another. I have a motion sequence of a goose flying. It is pieced together frame by frame from photoshop and the wings are in about 24 different positions over 40 frames . When I tell Motion to make particles, all the emitted geese are flapping their wings in the exact same motion. I thought that particles should come out slightly different from one another. What am I doing wrong. I tried making a .mov out of the sequence and doing particles that way, but the file was so huge that motion on my computer couldn't really handle it. I'm using Motion 2 and a MacBook Pro. Thanks for the help.

In the Inspector - Replicator tab. There is a check box called, Random Start Frame. Check if it is checked. Page 606 & 671 of the Motion User Manual.

Good Luck,

John

HI JOHN,

Thanks for your repsonse. Actually, I'm trying to make particles not replicating. In inspector under emitter tab I don't see any box for random start

There should be a "random start frame" under the emitter as well. Four button from the bottom, just above, "show particles as" pull down. Which version are you running? I'm using 2.12
