Hi there again everyone,

quick question - I've attached an image for the kind of thing I want to do with my particles as trying to describe after the 4day wkend of beer drinking that was me sisters wedding would be a bloody nightmare!! :)
is there a way to get an emitter to emit my particles regularly as in fig.B (below). At present they only emit like fig.A :(

reet - after a bit of snouting thru the manuals - apparently I have to check the 'stratified emission' checkbox under my PEmitter1_emission/distribution menu and turn the emitter from point emission to surface.

problem is - it doesn't work :(

anyone any more ideas on getting this to work - its really flummoxed me!!

It says this in the manual:

and my understanding is that I'd get this with the emission turned to random (its photoshopped by the way :D)

but instead I get this apology :(

can anyone please please shed some light on this.

thanks in advance
