View Full Version : Particle FXs

07 July 2003, 10:15 PM
i'm haveing trouble trying to make words dissolve like dust blown by the wind... right now i'm using an FX-Emitter and setting it to the surface and applying a wind effector to blow the particles... the probablem is the particles aren't dense enough and don't fly/flutter like dust... any tips or tutorials would be great... thanxs

I'll see what I can do when I get home. Hang in there, will be back in a few hours.

have you tried MD?

If you want to do it with pure particles then they will have to be very dense, or you could try increasing their size.
