Hi, i have an emitter and i record the postions but its too slow because i cant do it fast enough, is there anyway of making it two times faster without making my video 2 times faster?

thanx

If you've set keyframes manually and have some space between each one, you can right-click in the Graph window, choose Scale, and scale the frames (x) by 50% to make your emitter twice as fast.

With Record Position, you can't really get the same scaling effect, because there is a keyframe on every frame, so no space to scale down to. You'd have to manually delete half the keyframes and then do it.

Here's an idea that might make it easier: use "export position data" to get the data into a text file, then import the text file into a spreadsheet program, or text editor -- something that will allow you to easily delete lines of data. (For instance, I use a text editor that has a "line delete" function.)

Then you can import the modified data back into pIllusion using "import position data".
