Apologies, this is now my third post about this but I have now spent days trying to figure this out...
I have successfully created a tapered streak in Particular, using a light as a motion path, and animating from off screen left to off screen right, once the path has is right across the width off the screen it stays for a while, with turbulence, then swims off to the right.
(Animated size over life to gain tapered look)
I then need to have a word, in this case "Grow" that travels along the path, inside the tapered ribbon, exactly following the wavy line. For this I created a custom particle with the word Grow, duplicated my original particle layer and changed the particle type to sprite etc.. and had it follow the same motion path 1
This works but..the word custom particles are zooming down the path WAY too fast! I guess this is related to the emitter but I cant solve it.
1. I need the words to travel very slowly along the path (as this video is being projected 360 in a room glass doors...I dont want to make people dizzy!) How do I decrease the speed of the words, keeping the spacing between them the same. Ive tried particles per sec, but that changes word spacing and fast speed remains..
