Hi, I'm trying to create a face-me particle system that launches an animating texture on each new particle rather than having all the particles play the animating texture in sync... which is how particle age currently works.
i was hoping partical flow would have something like this but I can't seem to find anything.

any ideas??

thanks

Ey dude.

Just tick the "sync Frames to Particle Age" in the bitmap time properties.
And use a dynamic material and you should get this...

If that's what you want ofcoarse...

also combine the particle age sync thing with also using a multi sub object material where you can have differing scales, timings, colours, etc and pflow has an option to randomly assign the sub object materials to particles.

yeah I just found out that my crapola graphics card was not displaying the synced particles in the viewports.

Doh!
