View Full Version : Particle life using sprites

02 February 2005, 06:17 AM

I wanted to use sprites for some particles being emitted in my scene. Now I know there are a few choices for cycling these sprite images..still trying to see which looks best. But after using sprites for my particles, I can not change the lifespan of the particles. I can not change them to last longer than a second or two, and that isn't too good looking for the effect.

Is this something that would have to be mel scripted (ouch I hope not lol) or is this tied to the cycling method of the sprites? I am still trying them all but haven't seen them affect lifespan of particles.

I did a search and sprites didn't come up too much, so any tips would be greatly appreciated.
