as much as i love particle illusion, i have been banging my head against the wall to figure something out. i don't want the particles to have birth or death. i want them to be ever-present, with no lifespan, just floating in the air. like no disappearing or re-apprearing. i have messed around with everything but i can't figure out how to do this. maybe i am overlooking a simple option. if i am, pls help me, it will be much aprpeciated!
if you don't mind, i'd like to know what i can do to make the particles not fall down. i reduced the weight to 10 but now they all go up. so i applied a force field pointing downwards at 10 to counter the upward motion so they cancel each other out.i just want them to float in the air and move horizontally left to right and vice versa.
i figured it out. i just had to set the weight to 0 and delete the force pushing it down. it was really simple...lol. don't know why it didn't occur to me :) however, i want a better alternative to the horizontal motion of the particles. right now i have them move via 2 force fields which are then animated criss crossing each other in different directions.
