How to create a basic line....
on Jan 23, 2006 at 1:10:33 am

Hi, How can i create just a basic flowing line that dosn't dissapear or have glow or anything fancy, just a line that can curve all around the screen (It's supposed to be a mic cord). Also, could it go in almost a 3d type thing, like come at the camera or go away from the camera.

**This just needs to be a basic line, that dosn't disapate after a time, thanks!

The simplest way to do this would be to grab the Blank library, and use the Blank emitter.

In its particle type, turn down the Velocity graph to 0 so the particles don't move, the Life graph way up so that the particles stay on screen for a long time, and the Number graph up until you have an unbroken stream of particles. To get a zooming effect, animate the Zoom graph up or down.

You can create a blank by going into the Properties of any library, selecting a folder, and then clicking the Add Emitter button.

Or you can grab a blank library from the wondertouch site (here)
