I am adding some magic dust flying arround a couple of shots, and I am bgiining to notice that even though a light emmitter is not over the solid (my inpoint is after the solids out point) it is still emmiting particles. Is there a way to limit trapcode to one light emitter at a time?
To clarify lets say I have a shot that is two seconds long (00:00- 2:00) Above the clip I have my solid with trapcode on it (00:00 - 2:00). Then above that I have the light (emitter 1) from 00:00-2:00. I keyframe the light at the in and outpoint. Then at 2:00 to 4:00 I have another clip on layer 4, and above it (from 3:00-4:00) and anpother solid, and another light emitter (emitter 2). But, emitter 1 is still generating particles even though it's past it's out point.
I guess I could precomp each shot, but it slows down my workflow.
