I'm working on a project where I need to be able to control the speed of particles emitted from an emitter and the speed at which they are emitted. Essentially so I can slow them down or speed them up simultaneously.
I tried keying the speed attribute in the emitter tab, but it does not effect the speed of particles already in the scene. No luck with the conserve attribute either.
So I was wondering if anyone knows of a solution or if there is a plug-in or per-particle script that would help. I'm using Surface Emitter as well as Curve and Surface Flow, Maya 2008.
