Hey Guys And Girls, well heres me problem. I have a seen where a comet flys through space and i have it so its got a fire tail and all. I used a PArray, but my fly just dont look right i cant seem to get it to look anything like fire. I have the Material, but when i render it, it just looks like sqaures and i added a motion blur, but then it still didnt look right. I have tired other Partical types like Dots, Faces and so on and i cant get it right? can anyone help me out? please :)

You could find a tutorial to do fire effect using 3dsmax online or you should ask on the 3dsmax board. Otherwise, but it depends of the animation graphic style, you could do a fire tail without any complex tool.

Hmm use circle shaped gradients for the particle opacity and facemap em, They'll stop being square
