Is is possible to control the Particle Color with a Gradient?

I would like the particle to change color with age using a Gradient Map. I am aware of the Particle Age Map but it only seems to allow 3 colors.

There used to be a plugin in "Pandora" that allowed you to control color and opacity with a gradient.

Check out the Help for the Operators, Mapping. It works with the Gradient Ramp and does what you want.

Actually, you can get the Particle Age map to use more than 3 colors if you nest them within themselves. But it is a lot simpler to just use the Mapping and a Gradient Ramp.
