I am trying to create dust particles with Particular and I am not having much luck with it. I can't seem to be able to control how they float in the "air". They either are moving way too fast are not at all. There doesn't seem to be any subtle controls. Does anyone have a preset that I might be able to use to work from as a base? Or at least some ideas on how to better control the particles?
Have you used Air Resistance? Usually this is the best way to get slow movements - since it adds up exponantially, particles will get slower the farther away from the emitter. If you want some swirling, use Turbulence. Most likely your particles won't need any initial velocity and need just be drivven by gravity and the aforementioned effects.
