Trapcode particular - keep particles
on Jan 9, 2013 at 10:36:35 am

Hi there. I have created some basic particles but am having trouble working out how to make a few stay rather than them disappearing and new ones appearing.

So if i have 10 particles I want those same 10 to stay and move around rather than some of them disappearing and new ones appearing.

Thanks in advance.

If it looks good, look at it.

You want to increase the life span of the particles, and turn off the emitter once you have the number of particles you want on the screen.

Ben

You can use two layers with Particular and adjust their settings as required.
