I wondered how to mimic the look of the stroke featured in the example provided? I'm currently using particular but the edges of the line are too soft, even when I have sphere or streak jet particle selected and also if the stroke is travelling quite quick, I'm not getting a smooth path.

Any suggestions?

(and here's an example of what I mean with the line I've created)

You're using Particular? What are your settings? I would turn off/down to zero stuff like velocity randomness, air turbulence, etc, as these can all affect the "true" path of particles.

*EDIT* Re-reading, you want what you see in the example? Then I would play with, rather than turn down, the settings I mentioned.

Pat

Go to the Particular Properties in Effects Control Panel.

Now twirl down the Emitter Controls and Select 10x Linear, 10x Smooth Or Exact instead of Linear in Position Subframe.


This will change the jagged edges to smooth one.
