I'm applying a fire blaze (particle) to a scene. When I cut to the scene I need the fire blaze
to be in full flow and not to grow (emit) from nothing. In Combustion the way I do this is
by using preload frames. The whole project is built in fcp and motion so I need/want to
stay with motion.
Simplest way I think to do it is to move the group to the right so the blaze starts where you want it. If you can't do that then animate the opacity so in one frame it is set to zero and then in the next it is set to 100%. This way you don't have to alter any of the setting you already like. Hope this work around helps.
