Emitter end? ;)

I know that this has probably been posted a hundred times before but:

How do I set an end point for an emitter/ duration?

(In SE)


Thanks!!

Hi


Assuming SE is the same as its big brother.
Just set the main particle number to zero where you want it to end.
Conversely drop the opacity to zero as well, to completely shut it of visually....or both.

Thanks for contribution, but, I'm not sure I know how to do this, perhaps SE is different to 3.0 in that respect, or I simply can't find what your speaking of!

Use the "number" graph to turn off creation of particles -- step it down to "0".

Or use the "active" graph to immediately kill an emitter and all of its particles.

If neither of these do what you want, please give more details.

Ok, sorry to be a pain, right, I will explain in full:

Say I opened up Particle Illusion SE.

I then choose my emitter "splashes blue-green".

At frame "1" I place my emitter on the stage.

I then go to frame "70" which is the frame in which I want my emitter to stop. (not be visible)

How do I make my emitter stop on frame 70?

Thanks to all the contributors!

Select the "active" graph in the hierarchy window. In the graph window, click on the graph at frame 70. You should now see the graph "end" at frame 70. The emitter and all of its particles will disappear at frame 70.

If you don't want all of the particles to disappear, but instead just die out normally, use the "number" property instead. Select it in the hierarchy, then in the graph click to add a data point at around frame 70. You can drag it down to the value you want, which is "0". Then click to add another data point to the left of that point, and slide it up so that the "number" graph is flat, but then steps down to 0.

Have you watched the video tutorials on the wondertouch website?

Thanks!!

No I haven't watched any tutorials on wondertouch.com, I suppose the fact that you mentioned it means I probably should check them out, as I will.

Once again, thankyou.

-Tom.

Yes, the tutorials are very good. Also if you can find Elvis Dean's Magicians Guide to Particle Illusion on sale it's a good investment.
