Hiya,

I need to make particles 'pick up' a colour as they go through a curve flow.

I'm guessing there is a utility node that could do this somehow. Could anyone suggest one that might work?

thanks

Rupert

I believe that a curve flow setup will cause all particles to pass a certain point along the curve at exactly the same age. Therefore, a simple colour ramp reading 'ageNormalized' and connected to rgbPP should do the trick.

Post again if you need more directions.
