I've been working through the PI written and video tutorials, and have made my way to the video tutorial about changing the "word" in one of the text-manipulation emitters.
I've got it working fine, except that my word disappears almost as soon as it appears. It doesn't seem to make any difference if I adjust the "number" and "visibility" properties of the emitter; the text still disappears right away.
How do I make the text stay visible for as long as I want it to???
Further info: I've now also experimented with the few text-based emitters included in PI's regular emitter packages, and they work as I'd expect them to -- extending the number of frames in the project extends the "visibility time".
But I'm still curious about why I'm unable to control the visibility time when I experiment with the emitters that are used in the video tutorial. Adjusting the number of frames has no effect on the "word's" visibility, with those emitters.
