derek7:
you are about to break the record for most questions in the lowerst time..

at first i thought: what a jerk! rtfm...
but i must admit..
most of your questions i can not answer because i really never cared about stuff like "rotation type" in particle instancer, since i used defaults and it always worked..

really tricky questions..

about this one:
i think density and transparency are really about the same. but it happens often, that you need them both to fet the look you want (e.g. have one to fade out particles over time and the other one to define the density)..
i think the blob map is different, since it is not meant to be used for a per particle solution.. nevertheless i would guess (without testing) that you could use it as trans. and density..

never really made up my mind about that stuff ;)

cheers
