Hi,

I want to animate the age of a particle flow, so that it starts off at 60 and over a couple of seconds the particle age reduces to 10. This is to simulate a flame coming out the end of a gas pipe and then after a while the flow of gas is drasticaly reduced leaving just a small flame.

The particle need to pass thier age on to afterburn so simply deleting them won't work


Cheers
Garry

You can either use Script Operator (function like setParticleLifespan) or Box#3 solutions.

Thanks,
Oleg B.
