Hello all,

Not sure if this is me being plainly stupid or not but I have my particle world set to 0.32 birth rate (as it's the lowest I can set it to) however there are still far too many particles on the screen for my liking. However, when I try to set particle world below 0.32 birth rate (even 0.31) all of the particles disappear and not a single one shows in my video?

Can anyone explain why and either help me fix the issue or possibly help me to reduce the number of particles a different way :o?


Edit: I believe I found the factor causing the particles to disappear. I time stretched the particle layer further than i already had and now the minimum birth rate is 0.38, so i'm assuming this is the problem.
